Throughout the film Eric Carle's passion for creating picture books and the message that we can all be creative artists comes through. "I can do it, you can do it," he says.

Eric’s sense of connection to the child he once was and his sensitivity to each child’s unique nature will inspire audiences and classrooms, teachers, parents and young readers of Eric Carle's beloved books. Eric Carle: Picture Writer, The Art of the Picture Book taps into that deep creative need in each of us, a spirit that started in Eric as a very young child and is unceasing today.
