Happy Birthday Eric Carle!

June 25th, 2011 by Eliza Eliza

June 25th is Eric Carle’s birthday! We were so lucky to be able to see Eric recently here at The Carle for the Tomi Ungerer exhibition opening. Here are a few photos of all the different ways we’ve celebrated Eric’s birthday in the past:

A Caterpillar parade in our courtyard:

A giant Very Hungry Caterpillar puppet walking through our apple orchard:

A giant birthday cake in our Great Hall:

A museum staff gathering in front of Eric’s murals:

and, of course, birthday cake!

Lots of cake!

Happy Birthday, Eric, and best birthday wishes from all of us for the coming year!

    Dear Eric,
    Thank you for a lifetime of art, memories, and joy. YOU are a most loving, creative influence of children’s literature. Lots of love and thanks for all you give to the childrnen’s book lovers of the world, of ALL ages.

  3. Happy Birthday Eric Carle! My family loves his books. They have helped instill a love of reading with all of my kiddos. The past two years we have celebrated his birthday with special activities. Wish we could have made it to The Carle for the party as it looked like lots of fun.
