I'm doing my first author study with my 1st grade class this week, and I wanted to begin with a good, age-appropriate biography of our chosen author, Eric Carle. I couldn't find anything online, so I went straight to the source and used Eric's website to create this nonfiction emergent reader about his life. The majority of the pictures are from his website, but a few are from elsewhere. All of the information is directly from his website. This emergent reader would be great in a small group or whole group setting. Enjoy!
