27th September Bernard Waber (1921 - 2013)

Today is the birthday of Bernard Waber, the creator of Lyle, Lyle Crocodile! Lyle lives with the Primms family in a city home, hardly the place for a crocodile as we learn from reading all the stories about him. Waber also wrote and illustrated Ira Sleeps Over and But Names Will Never Hurt Me, two books that are often used in early childhood classrooms in circle time. Waber's more recent title Courage, a book about conquering fears, continues his reputation for books that make for good discussion between adult and child or teacher and class.
