SATURDAY MORNINGS FOR KIDS: CELEBRATING CHILDREN’S AUTHORS’ BIRTHDAYS

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.
