First Book on His Own: MINE!

First Book on His Own: MINE!

A lovely mother sent this video of her son Cannon reading Mine! She says it is the first book he’s able to read on his own. How lovely!

Enjoy!

Crystal Kite Winner Patrice Barton Honored at SCBWI Site . . .

Patrice Barton illustrated MINE! (written by me), for Knopf in 2011.  She was honored by winning a Crystal Kite award for her work. This award is given by the voting members of SCBWI (Soc. of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators).  YAY, Patrice!!!

 

 

There’s a very nice piece about her and her work at the SCBWI blog site.  Its at:  http://scbwi.blogspot.com/2012/08/the-2012-crystal-kite-winner-profiles.html .

Stop by while it’s still up. And a little bird recently notified me that Patrice and I are not done collaborating. There’ll be another book out with Alfred A. Knopf in the near future, titled UH-OH!   (no pub. date yet).

Enjoy!

I LOVE my young fans—even those of you who are oldster-youngsters. But the little ones are sooooo sweet. Here’s a couple of recent pics of new readers.

Enjoy!
