From the Eric Carle Team: It is with heavy hearts that we share that Eric Carle, author and illustrator of The Very Hungry Caterpillar and many other beloved classics, passed away on Sunday, May 23rd at the age of 91.

When asked why he thinks The Very Hungry Caterpillar has remained popular for so long, Carle said, “I think it is a book of hope. Children need hope. You, little insignificant caterpillar can grow up into a beautiful butterfly and fly into the world with your talent.”

Thank you, Eric Carle for sharing your great talent with so many generations of young readers. #RememberingEricCarle

snitched from Wonder Book post...
Happy Birthday to Robert Frost! Did you know "The Road Not Taken" was originally a joke that fell flat? It was actually written to tease Frost's indecisive friend Thomas Edward, who took it seriously and was offended.
Below: Photo of Frost followed by pics of a first edition of "Mountain Interval" with the first book appearance of "The Road Not Taken" (for sale) http://ow.ly/2QpR50E9LZL
