Remembering Barbara Carle

Barbara Carle (1938-2015) was born and raised in North Carolina before moving to New York, where she began her career at The Cloisters bookshop. She went on to earn her Master in Education from the University of Massachusetts. Alongside husband Eric Carle, the renowned children’s book artist, she founded The Carle in the hopes of spreading their shared love of reading.

Throughout her life, art and books and the welfare of children were her sustaining passions. She believed that picture books could enrich children’s lives, that they could transform us. (GalleyCat)
