Synopsis

A split-page wordless board book teaching children the simple concept of shapes through Eric Carle's inimitable collage illustrations. Readers need to line up the shape in the top section of the book with the same shaped image in the bottom section. -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine andere Ausgabe: Pappbilderbuch.

Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende

Eric Carle is acclaimed and beloved as the creator of brilliantly illustrated and innovatively designed picture books for very young children. His best-known work, The Very Hungry Caterpillar, has eaten its way into the hearts of literally millions of children all over the world and has been translated into more than 25 languages and sold over twelve million copies. Since the Caterpillar was published in 1969, Eric Carle has illustrated more than sixty books, many best sellers, most of which he also wrote.

Born in Syracuse, New York, in 1929, Eric Carle moved with his parents to Germany when he was six years old; he was educated there, and graduated from the prestigious art school, the Akademie der bildenden Kunste, in Stuttgart. But his dream was always to return to America, the land of his happiest childhood memories. So, in 1952, with a fine portfolio in hand and forty dollars in his pocket, he arrived in New York. Soon he found a job as a graphic designer in the promotion department of The New York Times. Later, he was the art director of an advertising agency for many years.

One day, respected educator and author, Bill Martin Jr, called to ask Carle to illustrate a story he had written. Martin's eye had been caught by a striking picture of a red lobster that Carle had created for an advertisement. Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See? was the result of their collaboration. It is still a favorite with children everywhere. This was the beginning of Eric Carle's true career. Soon Carle was writing his own stories, too. His first wholly original book was 1,2,3 to the Zoo, followed soon afterward by the celebrated classic, The Very Hungry Caterpillar.

Eric Carle's art is distinctive and instantly recognizable. His art work is created in collage technique, using hand-painted papers, which he cuts and layers to form bright and cheerful images. Many of his books have an added dimension - die-cut pages, twinkling lights as in The Very Lonely Firefly, even the lifelike sound of a cricket's song as in The Very Quiet Cricket - giving them a playful quality: a toy that can be read, a book that can be touched. Children also enjoy working in collage and many send him pictures they have made themselves, inspired by his illustrations. He receives hundreds of letters each week from his young admirers. The secret of Eric Carle's books' appeal lies in his intuitive understanding of and respect for children, who sense in him instinctively someone who shares their most cherished thoughts and emotions.

The themes of his stories are usually drawn from his extensive knowledge and love of nature - an interest shared by most small children. Besides being beautiful and entertaining, his books always offer the child the opportunity to learn something about the world around them. It is his concern for children, for their feelings and their inquisitiveness, for their creativity and their intellectual growth that, in addition to his beautiful artwork, makes the reading of his books such a stimulating and lasting experience.

Carle says: "With many of my books I attempt to bridge the gap between the home and school. To me home represents, or should represent; warmth, security, toys, holding hands, being held. School is a strange and new place for a child. Will it be a happy place? There are new people, a teacher, classmates - will they be friendly? I believe the passage from home to school is the second biggest trauma of childhood; the first is, of course, being born. Indeed, in both cases we leave a place of warmth and protection for one that is unknown. The unknown often brings fear with it. In my books I try to counteract this fear, to replace it with a positive message. I believe that children are naturally creative and eager to learn. I want to show them that learning is really both fascinating and fun."

Eric Carle has two grown-up children, a son and a daughter. With his wife Barbara, he lives in Northampton, Massachusetts. The Carles spend their summers in the nearby Berkshire hills.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Future Librarian reviews "My Very First Book of Shapes 11. März 2008
Von B. A Vuolo - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Pappbilderbuch
In his acceptance speech for the ALA Laura Ingalls Wilder medal, Eric Carle referenced that he appreciated a description of his books as being "literature for the not-yet and just-about-to-be-reader" (Carle, 2003, 424). This time, Carle is teaching his almost readers about shapes through reincarnations of familiar characters from his other stories (the watermelon from a caterpillar reminiscent of the infamous Very Hungry, a friendlier version of the Grouchy Ladybug) to demonstrate shapes. Value contrast is applied to make the black shapes on the top part of the split book format jump off the page. A greater variety of shapes than expected (think crescent or squiggle) are introduced. Parents can use the book to engage children in a dialogue about other familiar objects that may be the same shape. It would not be useful in practicing print awareness, because the nature of the book does not encourage a child to begin at the start of the book, but being able to start the book on any page may capture the attention of the young audience.

5.0 von 5 Sternen One of the best 20. Januar 2007
Von Sarah Sammis - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Pappbilderbuch
It is one of the best introduction to shapes books I've seen. It has a wider variety of shapes than most books do. Each shape is also labeled and with the variety of shapes, beginning readers will be introduced to words they may not have had to read before. For instance, Sean has now learned the word almond. Of course the book has the lovely paper collage illustrations by Eric Carle which gives the book a vibrancies and personality. Finally, the book is a matching game. The pages are cut in the middle with a Carle illustration on one half and a black silhouette on the other half. Readers of the book are asked to match the black shape with the Carle picture. As the shapes aren't in order the book is somewhat challenging than a more traditional shape book.

3.0 von 5 Sternen I love Eric Carle as do my children 18. April 2016
Von Shannon D - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Pappbilderbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I love Eric Carle as do my children. We probably own all his books. This is the most disappointing one. The artwork is still stunning, however this book of shapes includes things that are not really shapes -- and especially not shapes a young children, who the book is intended for, is going to know/understand. I originally purchased this to teach my kid different shapes, but this is not a good book for that. It's nice to look at and enjoy, but not nearly as educational as I had hoped. So, if you are getting this book to try to teach your kid shapes: skip it. If you are getting this book because to enjoy as a book: awesome!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Cute 6. März 2015
Von Ashley - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Pappbilderbuch
This is a very simple book. The top shows shapes and the bottom shows images that represent them. You flip through and match them up. Despite its simple nature I must give it a 5 star review because my 2 year old loves to look at it. I'm not sure when a squiggle became a shape, but it seems to be her favorite image.
