Favorite Authors Series: Gail Gibbons

Given the hundreds of picture books I have read over the years, people will often ask me "What is your favorite book?" or "Who is your favorite author?" I can never answer this question with just one book or one author because there is more than one book and more than one author. I decided to start a Favorite Authors Series

Gail Gibbons has written and illustrated more than a hundred informational picture books for young children. I love her holiday books the most because they give historical information as well as modern day information on the way we celebrate holidays in a fun and inviting way. I love that children young and old can benefit from these books because of the detailed illustrations. I view these books as great conversation starters between children and their parents and teachers. 

Check out her many other titles on her website
