Homage by a Master

Hello all! I know I have been participating inadequately on this blog, and I apologize for that. However, I found something so adorable, I know y'all would want to see it!
It's 10 Little Rubber Ducks by Eric Carle...an actual picture book depicting the same little voyage our own duck journals and ATC's (mine will be in the mail by mid-June, I'm going on vacation soon!) are experiencing! The pages are colorful and interesting...and there's a storyline for each duckie!

Look, there's even a page that shows when the poor duckies were dumped into the sea! See the captain's face?

How exciting Toni- A paper interested in our little Journal Project- that is truely fantastic!!
Once its printed, I'll be sure to ask you kindly with puppy dog eyes to send me a hard copy of the paper so i can put it up on my studio wall [something like that is bound to make me feel better when im feeling un-inspired!]
