The Nonsense Show
Carle, Eric
A "TIME" Magazine Top 10 Children's Book of 2015!
Ducks growing out of bananas?A mouse catching a cat?What s wrong with this book from the creator of "The Very Hungry Caterpillar"?
Yes, there s something strange, somethingfunny and even downright preposterous onevery page of this book.But it s not a mistake it s nonsense! And it s also surrealism.Nonsense lies at the heart of manybeloved nursery rhymes. Children readilyaccept odd statements like the cowjumped over the moon and the dish ranaway with the spoon. This fanciful bendingof reality is also basic to surrealism.
In this book, nonsense and surrealismcombine to spark creativity and imagination. What s true? What s impossible? What s absolutelyabsurd?From Eric Carle, creator of the classic, "TheVery Hungry Caterpillar, " comes a book to makechildren laugh and think, preparing them for alifetime of loving both words and art.
Following on the heels of"The Artist Who Painted a Blue Horse"(an homage to the artist Franz Marc and expressionism) and"Friends," with its semi-abstract artwork, "The Nonsense Show"forms a trilogy of sorts, dedicated to introducing young readers to different styles of artwork without ever overlooking the need to, first and foremost, appeal to children and their love of play. One of the true legends and pioneers of picture book making continues to expand and challenge the genre.
Praise for "The Nonsense Show"
* "Carle creates fun and laughter in thishomage to the surrealist artist Rene Magritte. [P]erfect for storytimesand silly times all round. Carle hits it out of the nonsense park!" "Booklist," starred review
* "A sure hit as a read-aloud and a definite purchase for picture book collections." "School Library Journal," starred review

* "A picture book made to incite pleasure and joy." "Kirkus Reviews," starred review
* "["The Nonsense Show"], with its cleanly designed white pages, makes the unexpected elements of the imagery stand out and prompts questions and wonder." "Horn Book," starred review"

10 Little Rubber Ducks - Board Book
Carle, Eric

Ahoy! All aboard for a world of learning and fun!

"Ducks overboard!" shouts the captain, as a giant wave washes a box of 10 little rubber ducks off his cargo ship and into the sea. The ducks are swept away in various directions. One drifts west, where a friendly dolphin jumps over it. A whale sings to another. But as the sun sets, the 10th little rubber duck is left all alone, bobbing helplessly on the big wide sea. Small readers and listeners will empathize with the little duck's plight--and will rejoice at the heartwarming surprise ending.

In this poignant and funny story, illustrated with strikingly designed collages, Eric Carle takes readers on an exciting voyage of discovery. Following the little ducks as they float to all parts of the globe, young explorers can see for themselves the meanings of directional words and learn simple math concepts, such as counting and the use of cardinal and ordinal numbers. Each creature the ducks meet is seen in its own habitat and behaves in a true-to-life manner, offering a very simple first view of biology and geography.

"A wonderful read-aloud for storytimes or one-on-one sharing. It's a definite 10," commented School Library Journal in a starred review. "Beautifully composed illustrations," said Booklist. "As sublimely simple and endearing as the playthings it portrays," agreed Publishers Weekly.

This board book edition with sturdy pages is perfect to share with toddlers. Note that this edition does not include a squeaker at the end.
