Eric Carle will be our focus author for September. Many of Eric Carle’s books have a repetitive pattern in the text, which makes them easily predictable and therefore suitable for emergent readers. Many of the books also have a mathematical focus such as time, number or shape, and help to consolidate the math work we are doing. Eric Carle uses a very distinctive style in his illustrations that children can recognize easily.
Eric Carle’s books have been translated into many different languages. In school we will be reading his books in English and Japanese. If you have any of Carle’s books in another language, we would love it if you would share them with us.
