A Love Story and a love song


My book The Very Quiet Cricket is really a love story. For when they find each other, "...he chirped the most beautiful sound that she had ever heard."

Happy Valentine's Day to all!

Happy Valentine's Day Mr. Carle! I have a question for you...do you ever do author appearances? I'm student teaching now, and I'd like to do a fun school event this semester!

I've never been a solid sleeper, too many things to pay attention too. I remember once at the age of five I kept getting out of bed and blaming my lack of sleepiness on various things in the world.

When I came up with "the crickets are chirping too loud!" my Dad thought for a moment and said to me, "just imagine they are singing you a lullaby."

It was the "Dad"liest thing my father ever said to me, and I've always treasured it as a lovely thing. And I think of him every time I see crickets. What a wonderful memory to be sparked by this picture!
