1st August Gail Gibbons (1944)
American Gail Gibbons seems to have written and illustrated a book on every conceivable subject there is. She is a prolific non-fiction writer and while many of her books seem simple compared to a more robust non-fiction title that includes photographs, headings, a glossary and a myriad of other non-fiction components, they do provide factual information, and often just the right amount, for the very young children who frequent my library. Used together with photographs they still have a place.
