Description

Product Description Amazon.com Review The three-toed sloth of the Amazon rain forest is very very slow. "Why are you so slow?" the howler monkey asks. But the sloth doesn't answer. He doesn't respond when the caiman asks why he's so quiet either--or when the anteater asks why he's so boring. He is only moved to speak when the jaguar asks him why he's so lazy. After thinking long and hard (as sloths tend to do) he begins to elaborate on his many slothful qualities: unflappable lethargic but not lazy. "That's just how I am. I like to do things slowly slowly slowly." This simple introduction to the joys of sloth (and sloths) may be the perfect book for bedtime--parents and children alike will enjoy learning in zoologist Jane Goodall's foreword that sloths sleep 15 to 19 hours a day! The beautiful tapirs tree frogs and birds of the Amazon that adorn Eric Carle's cut-paper collage color-drenched pages are identified at the close of this lush oversized picture book. (Preschool to age 5) --Karin Snelson About the Author 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 123 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. copyright © 2000 by Penguin Group (USA) Books for Young Readers. All rights reserved.
