Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art
It's Monday, Picture Books Past. Isn't it great that since 2002 the Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art has been open? There, great books of the past are celebrated and wonderful contemporary books are recognized. The mission of the museum is "to inspire, especially in children and their families, an appreciation for and an understanding of the art of the picture book." Watch the virtual tour here. And see what some of their past exhibits have been here. We can look all around the website while we're dreaming of our real trip there. It's a great way to glimpse some picture book history that's alive today.
