Carle Museum

Did you know that Eric Carle, author of  The Very Hungry Caterpillar and so many other favourites, has his own Museum of Picture Book Art?

The Museum hosts special exhibitions, programs and events. The Museum is in the United States but its studio blog, called Making Art with Children, is where you can find many wonderful ideas on open-ended art activities. The studio instructors/bloggers combine their passion for art and relate it to our favourite picture books. What a fantastic concept for getting children excited about literacy! The blog provides inspiration for making paper, monotype printing and even making a cityscape out of recyclables.

The Carle Museum Bookstore has a blog as well. There you will find countless book recommendations that are seasonally relevant.

But if you love picture books as much as I do, you’ll want to make the drive and check out the museum in person!
