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.
