Holiday Giveaway: Tony DiTerlizzi Doodle!

Can you believe it? The Carle is 10 years old! We threw a big bash here at The Carle last month to celebrate. It was a weekend full of book signings, artist doodling, stellar storytimes, reconnecting with old friends and making lots of new ones. It was the perfect time to thank our friends for their support over the past ten years, but we wanted to make sure we thanked those of you who were unable to attend as well. One of the special highlights of the weekend was a chance to purchase a special, autographed doodle by three amazing artists: Eric Carle, Tony DiTerlizzi, and Peter Laird. READ MORE
