At this play-and-learn exhibit, visitors step into the pages of Eric Carle’s colorful picture books. His classic “Very” series, all illustrated in his hand-painted tissue paper collage technique, introduces five special insects who take journeys of discovery. Each story is a testament to Eric Carle’s love of nature, his respect for the emotional lives of children, and his recurring themes of friendship, creativity, and the power of imagination. Visitors will:

  • Become the Very Hungry Caterpillar as you follow his path
  • Weave a web with the Very Busy Spider
  • Find your light with the Very Lonely Firefly
  • Make the Very Clumsy Click Beetle flip and jump
  • Compose a night symphony with the Very Quiet Cricket
  • Enjoy a gallery of prints from Eric Carle's Very Series as well as works in progress
