Atlanta family summer trip? See Eric Carle exhibit & live performance

June 13th, 2016

EricCarle“I See A Story: The Art of Eric Carle”

Planning a trip to Atlanta this summer?

We just got back from a whirlwind weekend there and highly recommend checking on the Eric Carle exhibit on display now at the High Museum of Art in a show called “I See a Story.”

Kids will enjoy getting a closer look at the beloved children’s book author and some of the original work that became treasured books like “The Very Hungry Caterpillar” and “Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?”

“I See A Story: The Art of Eric Carle” is on display at the High Museum through Jan. 8 2017.

Learn more here. 

__________________________

pancakes_0“Pancakes, Pancakes” Eric Carle musical

If you take your kids to the Eric Carle exhibit, you must, must, must also go see “Pancakes, Pancakes” show inspired by the Carle children’s book of the same name at the Alliance Theater Hertz Stage (located next to the exhibit)

The original music and high-energy performances are so fun and kid-friendly in this less than an hour long tribute to Carle’s work. When we went, the audience included toddlers up to older kids. My 7 & 9 year old were particularly in awe of the music and the performance by the 14-year-old show star Matt Alea, who plays Jack.

This must-see play – presented in conjunction with the High Museum of Art exhibition I See a Story: The Art of Eric Carle – runs until July 10 2016.
