An Eric Carle Trilogy

Surely, The Very Hungry Caterpillar was here.


Words to live by.


The sun – Eric Carle’s most immortalized art.


About Jennie

I have been teaching preschool for over thirty years. This is my passion. I believe that children have a voice, and that is the catalyst to enhance or even change the learning experience. Emergent curriculum opens young minds. It's the little things that happen in the classroom that are most important and exciting. That's what I write about. I am highlighted in the the new edition of Jim Trelease's bestselling book, "The Read-Aloud Handbook" because of my reading to children. My class has designed quilts that hang as permanent displays at both the National Liberty Museum in Philadelphia, and the Fisher House at the Boston VA Hospital.

    There is no greater artist than nature its self. Complex in its simplicity.

    Eric Carle’s got a lot of great quotes, but that’s one of the best.

  14. Elizabeth says:

    But he was STILL hungry. That has been our family’s theme for years. I can’t believe that my grandchildren are just as frequently ravenous as my girls were.
