I was a teacher for 31 years (recently retired), and I’ve followed your career for a long time. (I used to be Carol Perleberg, and met you through your brother.) I just wanted you to know that your work is delightful, so fresh and creative!

I used to have a video of Lois Ehlert where she was showing how she came up with her ideas on how she created her illustrations on “Eating the Alphabet.” I can’t find it anywhere and I’d love to be able to purchase it again. Any idea where I can find/ buy that video? Thank you!
