Guest Book Highlights

June 07, 2021 "My deepest condolences to the Carle family on the tragic loss of Eric. I met Eric while I was attending University, and worked for a short time as his assistant in 2015 While he and his wife Bobby were staying at their home in Blowing Rock, NC. Eric was such a kind and giving person. He had a very meaningful impact upon my life. His presence in this world will be sorely missed. So long as parents read his works to their children, Eric will live forever." - Jack Stevens (Boone, NC)
June 02, 2021 "Eric Carle, a wonderful artist with a beautiful souls which comes through in every book, will be greatly missed, but never forgotten! Thank you for all the joy you've brought to my family as I've shared your books with my daughter and now young granddaughters. We're starting our own "paper bank" so the girls can carry on in your much-admired style! God bless. " - Nancy Markon
May 31, 2021 "Your books will live on." - Stephanie Schell (Lakewood, NY)
May 31, 2021 "Oh mothers and fathers
And children
fondly recalling the thoughtful
hours spent on laps
turning the thick soft cornered
pages of board books
that caterpillar
so sweet
collage of colors
And so hungry
Munching its way
Through leaves
And oranges
And strawberries
Counting along and the little
Child finger poking
The literal hole
Where the very hungry
caterpillar is said
to have eaten- getting so
very full
Then transforming
into a butterfly- the kaleidoscopic
colors of spread
wings. Eric Carl
made so many moments
For parents and children
In Laps
For teachers
In classrooms
And librarians
in libraries
Sharing these playful
Being there
the wonder
Together." - Rachel Dowling (New Uork, NY)
May 31, 2021 "Remember seeing those children's books at Kohl's fifteen years ago." - Stephanie D Schell
