Very Eric Carle: A Very Hungry, Quiet, Lonely, Clumsy, Busy Exhibit

Very Eric Carle is a play-and-learn exhibit featuring activities inspired by five of Eric Carle’s classic books. Visitors can follow the path of the Very Hungry Caterpillar, weave a web with the Very Busy Spider, find their inner light with the Very Lonely Firefly, jump and flip with the Very Clumsy Click Beetle, and compose a night symphony with the Very Quiet Cricket. 

Co-organized by the Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh and The Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art, Amherst, Massachusetts
