Books that bridge the age and culture gap,
This review is from: The Mixed-up Chameleon (Picture Puffin) (Paperback)
I took several of Eric Carle's books to Sri Lanka when I was a voluntary teacher in a school in the hill country. The children were enraptured by the colours, the ideas and I was able to use this book as a teaching resource with children aged 4 - 10. I imagine that if reading this with young children anywhere one can play with the fun pictures and with the older child explore that child's desire to fit in with a certain group rather than recognise how wonderful that person is in his/her own right. So it looks simple but like all the well thought out Eric Carle books is a treasure trove for the adult reader and the child.
