Two of My Favorite Children’s Authors: Eric Carle and Margaret Wise Brown

Reading children’s picture books are enjoyable for people of any age.  As a teacher, I have had the privilege to read many wonderful, colorful, and educational children’s books.  Two of my favorite authors over the years have become Margaret Wise Brown and Eric Carle.  Margaret Wise Brown’s books have rhyme, rhythm, and repetition with interesting and fun stories.  Eric Carle’s books often teach with repetition while including Math and Science concepts in a humorous setting.  Some of Margaret Wise Brown’s books that I have enjoyed are:  Big Red Barn, Goodnight Moon, The Runaway Bunny, and The Sailor Dog.  Eric Carle has about 40 books in print.  Some of his books that I have taught from are:  Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?, The Very Hungry Caterpillar, The Very Busy Spider, A House For Hermit Crab, and The Very Lonely Firefly.  Check your local library for these books.  If you are able, consider purchasing some for your home library.  Begin reading to your child when they are very young.  Your library may have a reading program for children.  These programs are excellent to demonstrate to your child that there is a world of learning available to them at their fingertips.  You and your children will make new friends and have fun reading, while discovering how to use the library as an educational resource.  Happy reading!
