Children's Literature Fun Facts

I was doing a little research today on some books I'd like to get the girls for Christmas. While I get 90% of their books from the thrift store, I don't mind purchasing some really good quality books at retail prices.

I came across three fun facts:

1. Tomie dePaola and Arnold Lobel were friends.

2. Tomie dePaola has a blog.

3. Repositories of children’s books manuscript materials and illustration materials are preserved at three centers in the United States: the Kerlan Children's Literature Research Collection at the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis; the Northeast Children’s Literature Collection at the University of Connecticut; and the de Grummond Children’s Literature Collection at the University of Southern Mississippi.

You learn something new everyday, people. Every. day.
