Very Eric Carle: A Very Hungry, Quiet, Lonely, Clumsy, Busy Exhibit sponsored locally by PNC Bank opens at 10AM on Saturday, January 15, 2022 at Miami Children’s Museum. Co-organized by Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh and The Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art in Amherst, MA, Very Eric Carle is the first North American traveling exhibit for children inspired by the art of beloved children’s book author and illustrator Eric Carle.
At this play-and-learn exhibit, visitors step into the pages of Eric Carle’s colorful picture books. His classic “Very” series, all illustrated in his hand-painted tissue paper collage technique, introduces five special insects who take journeys of discovery. Each story is a testament to Eric Carle’s love of nature, his respect for the emotional lives of children, and his recurring themes of friendship, creativity, and the power of imagination. Visitors will:
- Become the Very Hungry Caterpillar as they follow his path
- Weave a web with the Very Busy Spider
- Find their light with the Very Lonely Firefly
- Make the Very Clumsy Click Beetle flip and jump
- Compose a night symphony with the Very Quiet Cricket
- Enjoy a gallery of prints from Eric Carle’s “Very” book series
