Favorite Authors

There are two great ways to become a good reader. One is to read and the other is to be read to! On this page you will find some of my favorite authors.  

Todd Parr
Todd Parr is the author of numerous books that discuss families, reading, differences in people, and every day things that are important to young children. His fun language and colorful illustrations make his books a favorite of many children.


Leo Lionni
Leo Lionni is the author of many stories including "Frederick", "Swimmy", and "A Color of His Own". All of his stories have powerful messages that reach children at their level and are a pleasure to read and re-read. He is one of my favorite authors.


Eric Carle
Eric Carle is a treasured childhood favorite! His books like "The Very Hungry Caterpillar" and "The Grouchy Ladybug" are fun for children to read over and over but are also full of rich language, interesting animals, and new vocabulary. He is definitely a spring time favorite.


Jan Brett

 Her beautiful borders around the pages of her stories, including "The Hat" and "The Mitten"allow children to make predictions connected to the text and use pictures to tell the story even before they can read the words.
