#263 Jane Yolen

I cannot possibly pick a favorite children’s book.  But I can, without hesitation, tell you who my favorite children’s author is – Jane Yolen.  She’s written a zillion books – picture books and chapter books and novels for kids.  They are all amazing and wonderful.

But today is Columbus Day.  (Boo.  Hiss.)  So you must go check out her book called Encounter.  David Shannon is the illustrator on this one.  The words and paintings are breathtaking and thought-provoking.

Go Forth.  And Read To Your Kids.
