On the boardwalk

Dear Friends,
It has been a lovely winter in Florida. A good quiet stretch of time by the ocean and just the kind of time the hermit part of me enjoys. But like many creatures, we are thinking about the next season and our migration back to North Carolina. I love this place on the boardwalk that leads from our home to the water. It is one of my favorite places to walk and sit, take in the ocean and the light and the sky.

  3. Dear Mr. Carle,
    My 4 year old daughter loves your books and we just finished a re-reading of Pancakes Pancakes after a gap of many months. This time around she noticed Jack's bare feet and all the modern trappings that were missing from his life and was curious about it. She wonders why there's no stove or light bulb or even a refrigerator for the jam! It is such a delight to share your books with her over and over again. She wanted to know where you lived and what you are up to now and I just showed her your blog and read her your latest post. Just wanted to share this with you! Thank you for providing us with so many wonderful memories through your books...
