Author Info
Eric Carle
American-born Eric Carle and his German-born parents moved to Germany in 1935. The transition from life in American to life in Germany was not an easy one for Carle to make. His school days were unpleasant, except for the encouragement he received in his art classes. In 1952, at age 22, Carle returned to the United States. He soon began working for the New York Times and remained there until he was drafted into the U.S. Army, which sent him back to Germany. After his discharge he returned to the U.S., this time with a wife, Dorothy. He illustrated his first book for children, Bill Martin's BROWN BEAR, BROWN BEAR, WHAT DO YOU SEE? in 1967. Carle is best known for his "Very" series, which he writes and illustrates. The series began in 1969 with THE VERY HUNGRY CATERPILLAR and apparently concludes with 1995's THE VERY LONELY FIREFLY. In 2003 he was honored by the American Library Association with their Laura Ingalls Wilder Award, which recognizes creators of children's books whose body of work represents a significant contribution to the field of children's literature.
Praise
"...an unforgettable lesson in complementary colors."
From the Publisher
First Line "Your birthday is coming up," said Mama Frog. "Let's have a party. A birthday party. Whom would you like to invite?"
Annotation An introduction to complimentary colors. By staring at a single-color illustration for several seconds and then moving their eyes to a blank white page, young readers will see a faint version of the same image in a different color. This interesting visual effect intertwines with the story of Little Frog, whose birthday guests all appear to be the wrong color. Collage illustrations accompany the text.
Editors Note Stare at a single color for several seconds and then move your eyes to a white space. You will see a faint glowing image in a different color, the first color's opposite. This delightfully simple and funny birthday story, with animals rendered in Eric Carle's brightly colored collages, introduces the concept of complementary colors. Full color.
Editors Note 3 Mama Frog gets a big surprise when the guests arrive for Little Frog's birthday party: Red Fox looks green to her! Orange Cat looks blue! What has gone wrong?With the active help of the reader, Little Frog shows Mama Frog how to see the animals in their more familiar colors. Is it magic? No, it's a remarkable function of the human eye. As Little Frog demonstrates, anyone can do it. Small readers will enjoy taking part in the fun of changing the colors of the animals. And they will laugh at the effect they themselves can create at the end of the story when Mama Frog gives Little Frog an embarrassing birthday kiss!Eric Carle believes that learning should be a joyful experience. In this imaginative book he invites young readers to discover complementary colors while enjoying the amusing story of Little Frog and his colorful friends.
