Item description for Al Hashara Al Ghadiba: The Grouchy Ladybug by Eric Carle...
For twenty years "The Grouchy Ladybug" has delighted very young readers and listeners. Boldly designed pictures and a humorous text tell the story of a tiny anti-hero like no other. The Grouchy Ladybug did not say "please" or "thank you"; it would not share; it thought it was bigger and more important than anyone else; and it was always ready to pick a fight. This fast-moving story with clever die-cut pages invites children to explore concepts of time, size, shape, and manners. They will laugh and learn from this bad-tempered braggart who met its match and became a nicer and better behaved bug. Book written in Arabic.

More About Eric Carle
The secret of Eric Carle’s books’ appeal lies in his intuitive understanding of and respect for children, who sense in him instinctively someone who shares their most cherished thoughts and emotions.
The themes of his stories are usually drawn from his extensive knowledge and love of nature—an interest shared by most small children. Besides being beautiful and entertaining, his books always offer the child the opportunity to learn something about the world around them. It is his concern for children, for their feelings and their inquisitiveness, for their creativity and their intellectual growth that, in addition to his beautiful artwork, makes the reading of his books such a stimulating and lasting experience.
Eric Carle has received many distinguished awards and honours for his work, including, in 2003, the Laura Ingalls Wilder Award for his lifetime contribution to children's literature and illustration.
Carle says: “With many of my books I attempt to bridge the gap between the home and school. To me home represents, or should represent; warmth, security, toys, holding hands, being held. School is a strange and new place for a child. Will it be a happy place? There are new people, a teacher, classmates—will they be friendly?
I believe the passage from home to school is the second biggest trauma of childhood; the first is, of course, being born. Indeed, in both cases we leave a place of warmth and protection for one that is unknown. The unknown often brings fear with it. In my books I try to counteract this fear, to replace it with a positive message. I believe that children are naturally creative and eager to learn. I want to show them that learning is really both fascinating and fun.”
Eric Carle has two grown-up children, a son and a daughter. With his wife Barbara, he divides his time between the Florida Keys and the hills of North Carolina.
Eric Carle es el creador de mas de setenta libros ilustrados para ninos.
Nacio en Syracuse, Nueva York, pero a los seis anos de edad se traslado con sus padres a Alemania. En 1952, tras graduarse de la prestigiosa Akademie der Bildenden Kunste de Stuttgart, logro cumplir su sueno de regresar a Nueva York.
Ha recibido muchos e importantes premios y distinciones, entre ellos el Laura Ingalls Wilder Award en 2003, por su aportacion global a la literatura y a la ilustracion infantil.
En 2002, cincuenta anos despues de su regreso a los Estados Unidos, se inauguro en Amherst, Massachusetts, el Museo Eric Carle de Libros Ilustrados, donde se exhibe, ademas de la obra completa de Eric Carle, un buen numero de originales de los mas destacados ilustradores de libros infantiles del mundo entero.
Eric Carle currently resides in New York. Eric Carle was born in 1929.

Eric Carle book ... what can I say? Sep 4, 2007
I am a big fan of Eric Carle's books. So, when I found this book in Arabic, I got it right away. Because I had a difficult time finding good Arabic books for my daughter, I always try to describe both good and bad things, with stress on the bad (just, cause I had specific needs in the books I get)
- This book is meant to teach time. It shows the times mentioned in the story on a clock, on the top corner of the book at each page where the time is mentioned. This teaches kids how to tell time. So simple, yet brilliant. - It is really awesome that this book is written with ALL the diacritical marks (tashkeel), which makes it an awesome book for kids who are learning to read and write. - It is rather Lebanese oriented Arabic (like most books in the market), so the Lady bug is called Da'souka instead of for example the Egyptian Abul Eid. Not such a big problem, when reading to your child, cause it is an easy alteration. - It also teaches children that being nice saves you the trouble of having a bad day and of going through hardship. The lady bug had to take the huge trip being grouchy, when she just could have shared the food with the other lady bug. It ended eating with her in the end anyways. - Lastly, I do not think that this book is for 0-3, not in English, nor in Arabic. Telling time, starts at an older age. It is more 3+ or older.
