Children's Literature: Authors and Illustrators

If you don't follow KB Connected you might want to check out a recent post of hers that provides a website listing many of our favorite children's authors and illustrators

One of my favorite authors/illustrators for read-alouds to my boys when they were young was Patricia Polacco. Her rich Russian background led to beautifully detailed paintings telling her stories. I had the good fortune to meet her in person a few years ago and see the 'keeping quilt' featured in one of her stories.

I'm looking forward to exploring the sites and discovering new facts about my favorite illustrators to share with my students...
