Overview

Here are three never-before-published Eric Carle board books about direction-gathered together in a smart, handsome slipcased package. One book features things above us, such as planes, clouds, rainbows, and the moon. A second book shows things on the Earth's surface, like trucks, boats, and trees. The third book presents things that are below us, like roots, fish, and hibernating bears.

Each picture is paired with a simple noun-and-verb text that is perfect for teaching young children words and concepts. A clever tool for parents and teachers, this fun, colorful package also makes the ideal gift for Eric Carle fans of all ages.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
One of three wordless concertina friezes shows objects in the sky (sun, rainbow, plane, rain, clouds, moon), another features objects above ground (trees, ships on the water, people in houses, animals) and yet another, objects beneath the ground (crocodile, coalminer, fish swimming, tree roots, burrowing animals). Carle's illustrations are characteristically poster bright and childlike, with recognizable shapes for younger readers and a sharply focused concept for older ones. All Around Us is a simple idea, executed here with precision. (2-up)
