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.
Reviews - What do customers think about Pancakes, Pancakes!?
Surprisingly absorbing book Apr 4, 2008
When I first read through this I wondered if my 4 year old would be able to focus as there are many steps to making the pancakes, but she just loves it. After reading it a few times she loves anticipating what comes next in the sequence of events. It's not "The Very Hungry Catterpillar", but it's still a really worthy book. I think it's particularly neat because it gets kids to start realizing that simple items like flour, milk and eggs don't just originate in the grocery store.
Daughter Addicted to the Book Dec 27, 2007
My daughter is 18 years old now and still says this was the best book she ever had. When she was a preschooler, I got to the point where I hid the book because she asked me to read it to her every night. She believes that the artwork was mesmerizing and the story was secondary. Other Carle books didn't hold her interest.
A favorite Dec 17, 2007
This book falls into the category of library books that my son loved so much that we decided to stop renewing and buy. He loves Eric Carle, but this rates up there with the much read Hungry Caterpillar, Busy spider, Papa please get the moon, and 10 Rubber ducks. We have even tried the pancake recipe!! We should have ordered the hard cover version......
Great book for young people Apr 10, 2007
While volunteering for a reading program, I ran across this book. I read it to some 4 and 5 year olds. The students loved the colorful pictures and asked me to read this book over and over. I would recommend this book to anyone who has a child in their life.
pancakes Feb 15, 2007
I ordered 14 Eric Carle books because I loved his hungry catterpiller, polar bear and brown bear books however the 14 others I ordered were very disappointing. I never have time to go to the post office or else I would have returned every single one including this book.
