A Young Eric Carle

Thanks, everyone, for the congrats. I actually do have some stories about my daughter, who we actually told a few weeks ago, that I’ve been dying to tell, but had to wait. In the meantime…

My daughter has been getting into “reading”. Oh, she’s only 2 1/2, so she can’t really read. But she knows the stories so well, she’ll sometimes pick up the book and start reading to us. There are two constants to these readings: they always begin with “Once upon a time…” and there is always a character substitution.

This afternoon, she picked up The Very Lonely Firefly by Eric Carle and began reading it to me. It went like this:

Once up on a time, there was a lonely zebra
<flip the page>
The zebra was still lonely
<flip>
The zebra was still lonely
<flip>
The zebra was still lonely
<flip>
The zebra was still lonely

Personally, I think she’s nailed Eric Carle’s style.
