Tea and Bread

Tea and bread are two of my favorite things to drink and eat


  1. What a cozy illustration! Once again, another winner Mr. Carle. Thank you for your talent and blessing the lives of so many around the world with your work.

  2. What a wonderful feeling in this picture! So warm, joyful and cozy. I'm Russian, and we indeed drink lots and lots of tea and eat lots and lots of bread, traditionally. Here is to you - as I am having a cup of chamomile tea, dear Eric!

  3. Dear Mr. Carle,

    I love your latest picture posted on Jan. 14th, as I am literally sitting here with my son researching your work eating toast and drinking tea :).
    (I just happen to stumble upon this blog as we are researching you online)

    I am teaching my son, Dylan, about your background and art techniques by watching some Youtube videos and reading your books, as he recently sprouted an interest in learning your techniques.

    He is 5 years old and absolutely loves your books especially The Very Lonely Firefly and Pancakes, Pancakes!. My personal favorite is Mister Seahorse.

    Thank you for inspiring my son and millions of other young artists and writers world wide.

  8. Bread is also one of my favorite things, Mr. Carle. Not so much tea, but bread is excellent for the soul.
