    There was such a tremendous response for "Favorite Book" that I wanted to start another thread!

    Who is YOUR favorite Children's Author? A few of my favorites are:

    Eric Carle
    Chris Van Alsburg
    Jan Brett
    J.K. Rowling
    Patricia Palocco
    Steven Kellogg
    Dr. Suess​

    I have posted favorite picture books, chapter books, and the authors that I have already listed, but I am always looking for more!!!

    I teach first grade, but I really wanted to have a mix of authors for various ages. I HOPE that once my website is up and running, that years down the road, my students will continue to use my website as a referece point for good, quality literature.
