They Say It’s Your Birthday – October 19 – 25

Author’s birthdays this week  (Oct 19th – Oct 25th)-

October 19th – Ed Emberly.

I used to love getting Ed Emberly’s Learn to Draw books for Christmas.  Since I am not the least bit gifted artistically these books were perfect for me.  Ed Emberly taught me how to draw animals using squares, triangles and other everyday shapes.



October 2oth – Crockett Johnson

Harold & the Purple Crayon has been delighting parents and children since 1955.


October 23rd – Marjorie Flack

Marjorie Flack illustrated one of my favorite books of all time The Country Bunny and the Little Gold Shoes. Not only is it a wonderful story but it is a beautiful book as well, thanks to Marjorie Flack’s illustrations.
