William Carlos Williams is such an inspiration. This book was a turning point for me artistically.
I wanted to share two other titles inspired by WCWilliams: LOVE THAT DOG by Sharon Creech and THIS IS JUST TO SAY: Poems of Apology and Forgiveness by Joyce Sidman. These three books make a fun trio.
Thank you again for gracing our book on your lovely blog.

I adore WCW and Melissa Sweet is also a favorite illustrator of mine. Jen Bryant has such a gift for taking snippets from life, turning them into biographies and making them accessible to children. Thanks for highlighting such a great book.

I am inescapably enamored with WCW’s Plum poem…it’s been around the block several times, but there’s no poem like that for effect. I think we discussed it in every poetry class I took…and that’s a lot of classes. That there is a children’s book about WCW! I’ll be buying. Thanks for the tip!

I also wanted to let you know that Mac Barnett (Extra Yarn) just visited my kids’ elementary school. He is absolutely charming, hilarious, and of course, super talented. His latest book is called Chloe and the Lion. We also like Guess Again.

This is one of my favorite children’s books! I love the artwork, too. Have you read The Boy Who Drew Birds: A Story of John James Audubon, by Jacqueline Davies? It’s inspiring, too.
