This is our sixth and final post in the Eric Carle Book Series! There are so many Eric Carle books. I could have probably done this series for a few months! The books I chose are books that we have personally read and done our own activities with at home. There are many I haven’t read and now I feel inspired to buy more for our library!
I picked up this book on sale and knew nothing about it except that I like Eric Carle and it looked cute. When we opened it to read it we saw that in the front of the book is a clip from a newspaper article about a shipment of rubber bathtub toys that fell off of a ship and were found washed up all over the world! After reading this sweet story I was so fascinated with the fact that this really happened. My daughter immediately asked me to “Google it up Mom”! So we went searching for the true story.
Here are some interesting articles we found about this:
