More About Eric Carle, Ben Whitehouse, Skip Hinnant, M.D. Thomas C. Chelimsky, Jerry Bingham, A. Peterson & Cory Doctorow

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.

Reviews - What do customers think about La Chenille Qui Fait Des Trous?

Great story to have in French, but cheap edition  Jan 18, 2008
In general, I am not a big Eric Carle fan. Some of his books I do not care for at all, while others I do like. This one, however, I think is wonderful. It is my favorite of his books. I like how it incorporates the days of the week, different foods, and the life cycle of a caterpillar. I like that my toddler can learn all these things in French, and he likes being able to put his little fingers through the holes made by the hungry caterpillar. I think this is a GREAT book to have in one's French children's library. The only thing keeping me from rating it five stars is the quality of the binding. It appears to be very flimsy/cheap, and I seriously wonder how long it would last if I allowed my three-year-old to look at it on his own. I really wish this site would offer this classic in hardcover, or at least in a better quality paperback.
La Chenille Qui Fait Des Trous  Nov 11, 2007
La Chenille Qui Fait Des Trous Love it! Exactly what I was looking for.
Great for French instruction, but am I saying it right?  Sep 25, 2007
I'm a language teacher (Spanish) and am bilingual. My goal is to introduce our four children to French as well as Spanish, so I'm taking a stab at doing all the things I suggest to other parents for learning Spanish. It's hard, when you don't know the language! I worked through Flip Flop French: Ages 3-5: Level 1, which comes with a CD, the first two lessons, and then read this book with the children, and they enjoyed it (we have it in Spanish and English as well.)

I'm writing this review today because I heard the boys (4 and 5 years old) sounding out the words, and saying..."wait, you don't say the end in French, just in Spanish." So, it's working!

I do hope I can find an audio version, though, as I know my French accent probably sounds very Spanish!
Excellent, fun language tool  Jul 26, 2007
This is a very good book for teaching young children some French basics.

The approach is good stylistically as well - it is not as pedantic as some of the less sophisticated books and stories can be crafted with this as the basis.

Devine Combien Je t Aime (Guess how much I love you) is also lovely - and a must-buy for anyone hoping to instill a love of the French language in their children at an early age.
A great way to teach french to little ones  Mar 19, 2006
We got this book because we are trying to teach our 5 yr old some basic French. This book is great for naming objects and days of the week the repetitive nature of the ryhmes make it easy for the child to learn. Since she knew and loved the english version, this was a great way to learn some french.

I recomend this with Ours Brun, Dis-Moi (Brown Bear What Do You See), Bonsoir Lune (Goodnight Moon) and Devine Combien Je t Aime (Guess how much I love you). These are books your child already know by heart and are a great way to introduce a second language to your young child.
