Eric Carle Can Illustrate YOUR Photo Book!

Photo books and personalized photo products just keep getting better!

Kodak Gallery has recently launched an exclusive line of photo books and cards featuring the illustrations of the iconic children’s author, Eric Carle.

Now, The Very Hungry Caterpillar, Brown Bear, The Very Lonely Firefly and more, can become part of your children’s own stories, illustrating your personalized Kodak Gallery photo books and cards.

Uploading and creating your Kodak Gallery products is simple and fast. I used to scrapbook – but since blogging took over my life, I no longer have time! So for me, photo books are the perfect solution.

It is so exciting when I see new options like these incredibly gorgeous Eric Carle products. Imagine my kids’ photos alongside The Very Hungry Caterpillar. That is too cool.

If you want to win $50.00 to spend creating your own Eric Carle photo books and cards masterpieces, just leave a comment at this post.

We will have two winners, each receiving $50.00 Kodak Gallery gift cards – so check back October 18th to see if you are one of our two winners. This contest is open to US and Canadian residents.

    How cool! Eric Carle was one of my favorite when I taught and I already read to my 14-month old daughter. How great would it be to capture her first year with those illustrations!

  4. D. Fenn says

    Eric Carle is one of my favorite illustrators – my favorite Mr. Rogers field trip was when he went to Eric Carle’s studio… fabulous!


  5. says

    Eric Carle has always been one of my favorite illustrators. I knew long before I even had kids, that our first baby’s room would be done in The Very Hungry Caterpillar. We were doubly blessed to have boy/girl twins so the theme was perfect! Gender neutral and my son is our ‘caterpillar’ and my daughter is our ‘butterfly.’ I love their room and love all of Eric Carle’s creations!1 I’d love to win this so I could create a book from their first year.

  29. Ann says

    For the last few years I have used Shutterfly for my photobooks and I have to be honest that they really need to update their backgrounds. I just got a glimps of them from the video of Kodaks and I would LOVE to put together a new photobook with their backgrounds.
    I really do not have time in my life to do scrapbooking, love the look of it but I know it would turn into an unfinished product if I even tried.
    Photobooking is a blast, so easy to do and I take hundreds of pictures. Before they just sat unlooked at in my computer until I discovered photobooking.
    My daughter is a senior, I would love to put together a book of her last year so she can look back on it with great memories.
    Thank you for the chance to win this nice prize and GOOD LUCK to everyone entering.

    I am so excited about the new Kodak books with Eric Carle. As a new teacher, I was fascinated by Mr. Carle’s story and intricate details in his books. He has inspired me to begin a long overdue children’s book that has been building notes and sketches on my work table. An amazing gift to children and adults alike…the simplest things, are the finer things:)

    Eric Carle is like a family member, we all read his books together. so having him illustrate our photobook…sounds just about perfect.
