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 Papa, Please Get the Moon for Me (Classic Board Book)?
Love this book! Apr 28, 2008
I originally picked up this book because my daughter, 2, calls her dad "papa" rather than "daddy" and I thought it would be fun even though it seemed a little ahead of her. Let me tell you, she can't get enough of this book! She LOVES it and she gets the story. She's just 2 as in 24 months old, and she sees the moon outside now and asks her papa for it. I love it and highly recommend this book to anyone!
Teeny tiny book, cute message Apr 11, 2008
This book is really small! Cute, but if you are getting it for a toddler they may need some supervision to make sure the pages don't get torn. Also a bit expensive for what you are getting..
Another excellent book by Eric Carle Feb 3, 2008
This book is among my daughter's favorites. She is nearly two years old and has already dog-eared and torn some pages, she literally has enjoyed the book to pieces. This has turned out to be a perfect book for her because she absolutely loves the moon. Seattle winter's don't offer many opportunities for even glimpses of the moon. It's also about a girl and her papa which is something nice for my husband to share with her. Don't expect this book to physically withstand the curious hands of infants. It's not tough like a board book!
cute book Jan 21, 2008
this book is very small - about 5" x 7". the pages unfold in creative ways and the story is cute. beautiful illustrations.
great preschooler story but not made for toddlers Jan 15, 2008
My 4 year old daughter has requested this book for her bed time story for about 2 months straight. It is a wonderful Eric Carle book - in terms of artwork and story, and as a bonus it touches on the reality of the phases of the moon, and the great lengths a father will go to please his daughter. Plus it has some cool fold-out elements of the pages. What more could you want? Well, you might want a book that is a little bigger (it's 4x5 inches) and a little more sturdy (the pages are made out of oak-tag thickness). This book definitely will not hold its own against a toddler. I recommend waiting until your child is 4 or 5, when he/she will not tear the book apart in a minute, and when they are old enough to discuss some of the elements of the story.
