2013: It Was a 10!

We give top marks to 2013 ? the year of The Carle?s 10th anniversay! It was amazingly busy, packed with exciting events and exhibitions. We were so lucky to have such a stunning line-up of author and illustrator visits throughout the year, as well as puppet shows, theater performances, lectures and presentations and so much more. I thought it might be nice to take a little look at the year with some photos to remind us of the art, books, and good times we shared.

Let?s start today by looking back at 2013?s exhibitions: READ MORE

Easy as Pie: A Picture Book Round Up

Happy Thanksgiving! On this day of family, friends and delicious fall foods, I want to talk about one of my favorite Thanksgiving treats...pie!

Do you have a favorite kind of pie? Here are some picture books from our Shop's shelves that highlight this favorite sweet treat.

Pie in the Sky by Lois Ehlert (Harcourt, 2004) READ MORE

Stuck in the Mud!

Sometimes in early spring we can feel a little stuck. We want it to be sunny and warm but things aren't quite happening as quickly as we like. Or maybe, with all the rain and melting snow, we are quite literally stuck in the mud! Getting stuck in the mud is a pretty common theme in picture books. Often the scenario is the same, a bunch of animals pile into a truck, barrel down a muddy road and...you guessed it...get stuck. Even though the situation is the same, it doesn't keep each book from being wonderfully funny and silly in its own way. READ MORE
