Eric Carle Museum

  • 1 min read


I had the chance to visit the Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art in Amherst, MA. It was great, but I wish it bigger.

They had an exhibit of Eric Carle hidden pictures, another for the artwork of Beverly Cleary books by Louis Darling and a third of the works by Robert McCloskey.

I really like Beverly Cleary and have read Mouse and the Motorcycle and Ramona the Pest. My mom loves Robert McCloskey because my mom is from Maine. His stories were often based in Maine.

Aaron Becker was scheduled to sign books later in the day but I couldn’t stay that long. I did get all three of his books. I like them.

The museum is along the drive between my house and my grandparents so I can go again.

  1. Hi Bridget, Wow, I bet you love to go to the Eric Carle Museum! I met him once in person. He came to our elementary school in Holt, Michigan and gave a great presentation. I sat beside him during the 15 minute presentation we did on his books. I was supposed to be in the mixed up Chameleon costume I made out of chicken wire, but sprained my foot promoting his arrival, and someone else filled in my part. Many of us dressed up as live characters, that came out of the oversized books made for the stage. It was a lot of fun. Hope you post more from your future visits to the Eric Carle Museum.
