I asked, “Who is your favorite author?” My son answered Eric Carle without a second’s hesitation. Our house is filled with Carle’s board books, flap books, and classic hardcovers that will last for many years to come. Read on for a complete list of Eric Carle books currently in print with links to over 40 read alouds.

with links to YouTube read alouds
I’ve loved using read aloud videos since I was teaching first grade. I would stream a video while the kids had a snack after recess. It was a calm time to take a deep breath, relax, and listen to someone (other than me) tell them a story.
I still use online read alouds frequently in our homeschool. It’s important for kids to hear a variety of readers, cadences, pace, and tone. If you’re doing a close read or rowing a book (reading the same book several days in a row) it’s nice to hear another voice reading. Sometimes it can give us a different perspective – changing how we perceive the character’s reaction or author’s commentary.
I hope that you will find new books, remember old favorites, and use this resource as a support for your author studies! I also hope that the accompanying links will save your voice a little today.
