A Visit to the Eric Carle Museum – More Than I Imagined

Standard

Here is a wonderful blogpost from Jennie, the excellent teacher, about an excellent museum!

A Teacher's Reflections

The Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art in Amherst, Massachusetts is a favorite for any lover of children’s books – because it exhibits the original art illustrations of the books.  One of my first visits was to see the original art of “Madeline”, a book I have read hundreds of times to children.  You can imagine the thrill of seeing the pictures, the real pictures, up close.  Yes, I cried.

Every exhibit is exciting.  Typically they highlight one author or illustrator.  I visited this past weekend.  The exhibit was “Let’s Talk!  Animals From the Collection.”  It wasn’t one artist; it was every animal you know from most of your favorite books, which means your favorite artists as well.  Yes!


This was the wall at the opening to the exhibit.
Do you recognize the animals?
