One of the members of a homeschool support e-loop that I joined recently contributed this interesting link yesterday: The Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art. Being a picture book fan and the daughter of an artist-mother who dabbled in children’s book illustrations, I could not pass up the opportunity to share this information. I plan to put this museum on my list of places to visit.
Thank you, Laurel.
Inspired by a little-known picture book from the pen of Bethany Tudor, this is a diary, of sorts, where I document some of my thoughts, activities, and ideas as I explore the challenges met by the characters in the story: hard work, the care and nurture of others, housekeeping skills, life changes, charity, community, and cooperation, among others. Like Samuel and Samantha, the ducks in the tale, I struggle and succeed, cope and celebrate, work and play, handling the tasks that come my way. I invite you to join me on my journey.
