Riding in the car with my children has always been a source of joy and pain...sometimes bringing grins from ear to ear and sometimes making me want to pull my hair out. I know that you can identify with what I'm talking about especially if you're a parent! Yesterday was no exception!
As Nattie and I drove out of the daycare parking lot, she asked me if I've ever heard of illustrator Eric Carle...I responded, yes and inquired, "What do you know about him?"
"Well, I know that he's an illustrator and Mom, he wrote The Grouchy Lady Bug! We learned about him today and we made Grouchy Lady Bugs! Mom, I'm not a grouchy ladybug!"
"Wow, that's so neat Nat! What else did you learn about him?"
"He wrote The Very Hungry Caterpillar."
Yes, he did. And when I shared this little car story with Natalie's teacher, she also mentioned the great website that Eric Carle has created. It's been awhile, so I checked it out too. Here's the link in case you're interested in checking it out too.
Loving car conversations and Carle, Eric Carle!
