Fun Freetime: New Issue of Story Monsters Ink!

The artwork of Eric Carle is distinctive and instantly recognizable. Since it was published in 1969, The Very Hungry Caterpillar has been translated into more than 62 languages. Since then, Carle has illustrated more than 70 books, most of which he also wrote, and more than 100 million copies of his books have been sold around the world. Meet the beloved author/illustrator who continues to capture the hearts of children with his magical world of color and words.

Also in this issue, we meet a 9-year-old author who is an inspiration to us all, a television executive who proves that if you can dream it, you can achieve it, and an author who didn’t let life’s hardships stand in her way of success. Our special contributors this month are Jo Ann Kairys, who writes about the lack of diversity in children’s books, and the Team Backpack Journalists, who covered a very special event and met the future leaders of our country.
