About the Author

Eric Carle is an award-winning, children's picture book author and illustrator whose most recognized work is The Very Hungry Caterpillar Board Book. Carle was born to German parents in 1929 in Syracuse, New York. The family returned to Germany in 1935, moving to a suburb of Stuttgart. Carle disliked high school, quitting at the age of 16 before graduation. He was admitted as the youngest student to the Akademie der bildenden Kunste, an art school. After finishing at the Akademie, he worked as a poster designer for the U.S. Information Center in Germany until 1952, when he moved back to New York City. He was a graphic designer at the New York Times and later worked as an art director at L.W. Frohlich & Co. In 1963, Bill Martin, Jr. saw a poster of a red lobster that Carle had designed and asked him to illustrate Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?, thus launching his freelance career. Among his many children's books are Hello, Red Fox, The Very Clumsy Click Beetle, and Pancakes, Pancakes!

From Our Editors

Every child loves to spend hours staring at the sky, picturing images in the clouds. Now, Eric Carle celebrates this pastime in a playful story told from a cloud's point of view. Through striking collage art and a simple text, Carle tells the tale of Little Cloud as he discovers all the wonderful shapes he can change into: a sheep, an airplane, and more

Employee Review

A great book to read to pre-schoolers on a rainy day. It's about daydreaming and using your imagination. Who hasn't looked up at clouds and imagined they were sheep, rabbits or even clowns like in this book? The story involves a small cloud who drifts away from the rest of the clouds but, as Carle writes, "... in the end, with some coaxing, Little Cloud does what clouds are supposed to do" and joins the group. After I've done an announcement for storytime, my co-workers ask me if I read anything otherthan Little Cloud!

Appropriate for ages: 2 - 8
