Last week, specifically September 16th and 17th, was a spectacular birthday week for children’s authors. The following “classic” children’s authors were born on those two days:
H.A. Rey, author of The Curious George series
Bjorn Berg, author of The Mrs. Pepperpot and The Emil series
Paul Gobel, children’s author specializing in Native American children’s books
Gail Carson Levine, author of The Ella Series and fantasy YA novels
September is a good month for reading for and to children, and these authors deserve to be celebrated for the laughter and joy they have brought to children the world over.
