Product Description

About the Author

Eric Carle is the author and illustrator of more than seventy books for children, many of them bestsellers. Born in Syracuse, New York, he moved to Germany with his parents when he was six years old. He studied at the Academy of Graphic Arts in Stuttgart before returning to the United States, where he worked as a graphic designer for The New York Times and later as art director for an international advertising agency. His first two books, 1,2,3 to the Zoo and The Very Hungry Caterpillar, gained him immediate international recognition. The latter title, now considered a modern classic, has sold more than 30 million copies and has been translated into forty-eight languages. Eric Carle and his wife, Barbara, divide their time between the mountains of North Carolina and the Florida Keys.

My daughter loves Eric Carle. She grew up on the Hungry Caterpillar and ths book was a good way to extend that interest. No regrets in the purchase.

Great stories, wonderful illustrations, not durable. Dec 4 2010
By L. E. Riley - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I ordered this set under the impression that they were board books. When they arrived I saw that they were small, hardcover books in a boxed set. These are NOT ideal for babies and young toddlers to play with. The box is held closed with a ribbon (choking hazard), and is very flimsy when the books aren't in it. The books themselves aren't very well bound and have regular paper pages. I have to keep them out-of-reach. However, it is a great gift set of some of Eric Carle's less well-known works (The Very series I think is his most popular).

Get out your glasses! SMALL print. May 3 2010
By A. Lauterbach - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Love the author and the stories but the font of this set is SMALL which makes for difficult bed-time reading in dimmer, night-time light. I also like my son to follow the words with me while reading to him and that is hard to do as well with this set.

These are not board books. May 28 2011
By C. L. Satonica - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Be aware these are not board books. When I searched for board book set, this was one of the results. Upon receiving the item, I've no clue why it popped up under my search. I love Eric Carle's stories, but these books are just not worth it. Even if you were aware they aren't board books, the type is too small and there is too much going on to be of interest to a young child. It's a scaled down hardback basically and I can't imagine children wanting to read something that small and busy looking. I didn't even want to read it myself. I'm disappointed as I just adore the Eric Carle books and wanted to add to our collection. You can't appreciate the beautiful illustration at this size since they are even smaller than you would think by product dimensions. All the words on the page detract from the space for the pictures. I would suggest getting a larger set of books.

Great classics but the print is so small! July 6 2011
By TheReader - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
The print is way too small on these books and its irritating to try and read, but i read them to my son anyway b/c they are books from my childhood, my advice is to spend the money and get the bigger version.

My baby loves the mini books! Jan. 2 2012
By Big boo - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
My 20 month old loves the mini books! Before I even had the chance to read the books to her, she was excitedly pulling at the ribbon tie and fishing out each book. She handled the books with ease & was burying her face in the mini books, which were a lot lighter and softer than board books. Despite being rough with the books, the pages have remained firmly intact with no signs of deterioation at all!

I have lost count of the number of times she has asked for the "Papa Moon" story. She can even complete most of the sentences in the book for me.

This is a very very good buy and I highly recommend it!
