Along with Careful What You Wish For, Carol’s earlier recordings Nightmares Rising and Happily-Ever-After: Love Stories…More or Less were recommended for inclusion in every school library audio collection by the seminal reference source, The Elementary School Library Collection.

Happily-Ever-After: Love Stories…More or Less, was an ALA Notable Recording in 1988.

Nightmares Rising was recommended by two wildly different organizations:

  • The New York Public Library called Carol a “gifted storyteller” and included the cassette on its list of their Best Recordings for 1984.
  • The International Order of E.A.R.S in Louisville, Kentucky wrote: “A few chilling tales by one of America’s best. Guaranteed to keep your eyes open!”
