Beautiful idea! The work is a wonder, such an impressive collection. Love the idea behind the project plus the clarity and technically adeptness of the work. Thank you for sharing!

I have attended this conference since 2014, except for one year where I was not able to go. I sit here eating a Thin Mint cookie in place of the usual end of conference cookies. This year was different. But in many ways this gallery was what what needed. I kept coming back to art pieces, poems, stories. Sharing in the hope, the pain, the rage...and the knowledge that we are not alone. When I lacked the hope that I could leave the hive and fly read the work of Candace Fleming and started at the little be just waiting in Eric Rohmann's art work. Thank you for this experience. Thank you.

Thank you so much for providing this gallery. I've gone back to it many times and have found new ideas and thoughts each time! I was particularly struck by Candace Fleming and Eric Rohmann's essay. Leave it to kids to find the most poignant messages in art!

Congratulations on this ongoing conference. Can Bears Ski? connects me to Winnie the Pooh (I still have my original copy). Next year I trust you will all be back in a vibrant auditorium. This year virtual is vibrant.

I have been attending the conference since 2016. I have enjoyed listening to presenters, meeting authors and illustrators, and other educators. I am inspired to share literature with children and adults alike.

Thank you for this gift of connection, heart, thought, and art. In these strange times, many are feeling voiceless. This wonderful exhibit brings us to the realization that we are not alone, not are we lost. The woods are deep, but dawn is coming and we will find ourselves once again on the right path home.

What an amazing collection of art. Joyce Sidman's mini-book is a favorite, even with the snow on the ground. Imagining life on Mars was also a nice "field trip" for our minds. Thank you for giving us a whole month to enjoy.

I've been enjoying being able to show my students the art and writing in this collection. This gallery has sparked conversation, and simmered thoughts. I can't wait to attend the conference again, hopefully in-person, next year. Thank you!

Thank you for doing this!

I was led here for an assignment for my WCC Children's Lit course, and while I'm disappointed to not have been able to attend in person, this was a lovely collection.

Thank you!

Drawing bears or Facing Off, reading, art, reflection, movement are keys to days with ourselves and so few others. It is the wonder of nature that makes something fresh to be seen, marveled at, and described. Thanks to all who wrote, drew, described, and kept going to make 2020 bearable.

What a challenge, what a joy this exhibit is. Thanks to all of the CLC staff, helpers, and coordinators for putting it on. Thanks to all the tech people for working on the online side. Thanks to the incredible illustrators and authors for their words and images for stirring up deep in the soul the aches, pains, anger, relief, and everything else. Lastly, thanks to those who are inspired to add their own exhibits based on this online conference. Your words and images will change the world, small or large.
