In Memoriam: Eric Carle
We Remember Eric Carle, Celebrated Children’s Author
“Children need hope. You, little insignificant caterpillar, can grow up into a beautiful butterfly and fly into the world with your talent. Will I ever be able to do that? Yes, you will. I think that is the appeal of [The Very Hungry Caterpillar].”
Eric Carle presented at the 2003 Sun Valley Writers’ Conference.
