Happy Birthday, Lois Ehlert!

More glittery leaves!

(Leaf men made by a child @ MRCPL)

Lois Ehlert is one of the most recognized and celebrated children’s illustrators.  Her use of collage as illustration is appealing to children and adults alike.  If you don’t believe us, just try finding Leaf Man in the fall, Snowballs in the winter, Growing Vegetable Soup in the spring, or Waiting for Wings in the summer.  While she does write and illustrate her own books, Ehlert also is known for illustrating other books, including the Story Time staple Chicka Chicka Boom Boom, written by Bill Martin, Jr.

So on November 9th join us in wishing Lois Ehlert, a fantastic storyteller and an even better artist, a very happy birthday!
