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.

Complete List of Eric Carle Books with links to read alouds on youtube.

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.
