The Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art 2013 Auction

I wish I could go to this. But, since I just got home from a trip to Europe, and seeing lots of other famous museums, I guess it’s not my turn this year. I would love to see the amazing illustrations at The Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art. I hope you can go and that you will tell me all about it! Please see below for details from the press release:
