I saw my first Eric Carle book when I was in kindergarten. It was Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See? and our class did an art project where we each created a page in the book.
It’s my most memorable art project from elementary school and that book was definitely a favorite growing up.
The Story of The Little Prince
Possibly set in the 1930s, a pilot crashes his plane into the Sahara Desert in Africa. While trying to fix his airplane, he comes across a little man (the Little Prince) dressed in green who is from an asteroid out in space. He tells the pilot about a beautiful rose that he left behind so he could journey across the galaxy. As the little man tells his tales, the pilot is slowly drawn into a world filled with imaginative thinking and strong friendships.
