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!
