Findings 3/16/09

Stumbled upon websites, books and bits of information:

1. Eric Carle, an all-time favorite author of ours, has a blog. Did you know? It was news to me.
Read what the author of "The Very Hungry Caterpillar" has to say here:

2. For anyone who loves smooth round river/ocean rocks, check these out-- made of renewable bamboo. I am wishing I had a bowl of them, waiting to sift through my hands:

3. Children's book recommendation for today: The Happy Hocky Family, by Lane Smith.
A book with visual and story appeal, this is an ongoing favorite in our house. It is on great manilla-looking paper, with illustrations that you almost feel like you could at least dream of drawing, and snapshot stories of the Hocky Family, including Mr/Mrs. Hocky, Baby Hocky, Henry and Holly Hocky, and Newton - the cat.
