Not much to say today. The only birthday I could find for today was Virginia Hamilton and I am not familiar with her books at all. I know though that she has won every major award to do with children's literature, including the Hans Christian Anderson Award, so I do need to learn more about her work. Her website enlightened me somewhat. Now to locate some books.
A postscript to my elephant books... I forgot to include Baby by Tania Cox and Ann James. One of the kindergarten classes at school came to borrow it yesterday as a follow up to one child's news. All the children were abuzz with the news of the elephant calf.
