Illustrator Wendell is happy to see the late Jean Craighead George's last effort receiving so much attention, citing in particular the recent article about GALÁPAGOS GEORGE (HarperCollins), in the "Randomly Reading" blog. See http://balkinbuddies.blogspot.com/2014/05/wendell-minor-is-happy-to-see-jean.html

Feb. 23 is Pub Day! From SLJ: "A solid option for a read-aloud or for children to present as readers’ theater. Minor’s detailed watercolor spreads strongly support the writing by emphasizing Earth’s natural beauty, the effects of industrialization on the environment, and the bright outcomes of treating the natural world with respect. An authors’ note and an illustrator’s note highlight the simple steps kids can take to go green. VERDICT A fine selection for reading and sharing."

Michael Bird takes 40,000 years of art and works by 68 artists, telling the story of each in an engaging, meaningful way that children and adults will enjoy. An important book, perfectly geared for a young audience, for an education in art, culture and the human experience.
