Meet Eric’s Carle’s Grouchy Ladybug and Hungry Caterpillar !

Date: Sat 23rd June ’12|| Time: 11:00 am – 12:30 pm|| Ages 5-8 Years

Master of the picture book, Eric Carle is often referred to as the ‘picture writer’. As the title suggests, it is mainly his distinct collage art-work that draws children to his books. He takes his inspiration from nature and often features animals (many of them small ones) in his books– a caterpillar, a ladybug and even fireflies that glow on the page!

Join us at Hippocampus to celebrate Eric Carle’s birthday. We will be reading some stories and of-course, making some collages .

About The Book: Jumping from the top of a mound of sand, you would say, is child’s play. And that’s what 11-year old Nidhi is doing one twilight, alone in the neighborhood making fun of the idioms “a leap in the dark” and “once in a blue moon”. What starts off as an innocuous prank makes the ground slip from under her feet, literally, and she falls into a world called Graria where events and people have tumbled out of a dictionary of idioms. Little does she know that there is someone out there who doesn’t want her to go back…

Please Note: These sessions are open for members and non members. There are no pre-registrations. Participation is on a first come first serve basis only.
