Purpose of this Blog...

You may have noticed that not all books are equal in capturing children's imaginations and in cultivating those innocent, tender souls. My goal is to help you find the ones that do!

A Poet, An Artist, and a Stinky Cheese Man

September 8th marks the birthdays of three significant contributors to the world of children's books - Poet Jack Pretlutsky, Artist Michael Hague, and Writer Jon Sciezska.

These three men's books were favorites of my oldest son when he was between the ages of 8 and 12; and I think their books were very influential in my son's chosen vocation as a stop motion animator, contributing to his sense of rhythmic timing, art, and humor in his projects.  

Take a look at some of our family favorites...
