Draw Me a Star by Eric Carle

I am a big fan of Eric Carle. The illustrations in his books, made with hand-painted tissue paper, are always bright and lively. His beautifully simple stories possess depth, making them enjoyable for children and adults.

Draw Me a Star is no exception. The story begins when a young artist is asked to draw a star. The artist goes on to draw a sun and a tree, a man and a woman, until he has drawn an entire world. Finally he takes hold of a star and sails away into the heavens. This is the story of creation with an artist as the creator.

I recommend this story highly, though I should warn you that the man and woman in the story appear naked. In my opinion, it is very tasteful; however, I encourage parents to preview the book and then make your decision about whether to share the story with your children.

I did an oral presentation on Eric Carle in my Children's Lit class in librarian school (Master's degree). I love love LOVE his work. He has video clips on his website that show how he creates his collages. (You may already know this, but just figured I'd mention it anyway.) For my presentation I actually created my own Eric Carle painted-and-collaged-tissue-paper masterpiece. :-)
