Eric Carle is the creator of more than seventy picture books for young readers.
Eric Carle was born in New York, USA. However, when he was just six, he moved with his parents to Germany. In 1952, after graduating from the prestigious Akademie der Bildenden Künste in Stuttgart, he fulfilled his dream of returning to New York.
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.
In 2002, fifty years after Carle's return to the United States, The Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art was opened in Amherst, Massachusetts.

I use this book with my Spanish II students and they love it. They all pantomime along with the animals. The presentation is perfect for teaching body parts and animal vocabulary.Published 16 months ago by RockaBetty
