Steven Kellogg Day

Today we celebrate Steven Kellogg’s Birthday!  As an author/illustrator, his published list is growing close to 100 books.  Wow!  Now, that’s remarkable.

I had the privilege of meeting Mr. Kellogg (excuse the bad photo scan) at a teacher’s conference many years ago.  Of course, the line wrapped around the building, but it was worth the wait.  He made you feel as if you were the only one there.  He took time to autograph the book, adding a personalized illustration as well.  I’ve always admired his work, but after meeting him, I’m even more impressed.

If you want to celebrate along with me, check out his website at –there’s a gallery, listing of his books, and more about how he became an author and illustrator.  You can even order an autographed copy of one of his books.

OH! Make sure you check out his tall tales (I mentioned tall tales lesson ideas last week)–With such detailed illustrations, his versions are perfect for read-alouds.

so, happy b-day Steven Kellogg–I hope you have a great one!
