Winter Holiday: Picture Books in Amherst January 15, 2012

Give up?

Amherst, MA!

I have wanted to visit the Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art ever since I first heard that it was being built. As you can see from the photo below, it is a huge, beautiful building completely dedicated to the beautiful art of children’s literature.

The Eric Carle Museum in Amherst, MA

There are three different galleries, a studio where kids can make their own art (didn’t get to go in there because I ran out of time) a library of picture books, an auditorium where I saw a lovely puppet show and the best gift shop ever. Here are a few more photos!

Sadly, you cannot climb on this statue. It was, however, designed by Mo Willems of Elephant and Piggie (to say nothing of Pigeon) fame.


This caterpillar has little seats inside it for tiny readers!

Looking forward to coming back soon!
