Caterpillar Exchange

Caterpillar Exchange

This is a bulletin board where teachers and parents using Eric Carle’s books in creative ways can submit their ideas.

We have heard from a number of enthusiastic teachers, parents, librarians, booksellers and children about the programs that are being taught using Eric Carle’s books as the focus or as the starting point. Some are reading and writing projects, some are science and math projects, some are art projects, and some projects combine all sorts of activities. We hear from prekindergarten care givers and we hear from 5th grade art teachers.

The ideas and opinions expressed here are solely the responsibility of the person submitting the entry and not necessarily that of Eric Carle. We reserve the right to not post an entry if we deem it to be inappropriate in any way.

Ideas have been submitted for the following Eric Carle books, however feel free to submit ideas for books that are not listed.

If you would like to submit ideas to be posted on the Caterpillar Exchange Bulletin Board, please e-mail us at
