  1. Beautiful and lyrical, Eric! You have a Mr. Rogers quality- so welcoming and comforting. Kids must love you!

  2. Delightful, Eric! We have a pond in our backyard, and the goldfish occasionally have to be "heron-evaders" when a Great Blue Heron swoops down for an appetizer.

  3. That was wonderful, Eric. I loved hearing you read and bring to life your Frog poem. I have your book and it is a treasure. I have to be careful because I need one for my collection for going into schools etc. AND I need one to give my grandkids!!! I think I will be heading to buy another soon. I am going to show this to my grandkids!! Next time I'd like to see you in person!! All best wishes for more books and songs and poetry in your new spot etc.! Janet Clare F.
