The Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art

My husband, daughter and I went to visit The Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art a couple weeks ago and had a wonderful time. It is a great place for kids and an inspiration for us writers and illustrators. We got to see original art of Eric Carle's The Hungry Caterpillar, (which just turned 40!) as well as an assortment of Ernest Shepard's pen and ink and pencil art from Winnie-the-Pooh and Tomie DePaola's original picture book art and oil paintings. We also had fun reading books, and making art out of tissue paper, like Eric Carle does. It was a great trip for us all, even Tito had fun. That's Marin's little gray tiger kitty that she's had since she was a baby (you can see him helping my daughter out with her tissue paper art).
