12th January Iza Trapani (1954)
Iza Trapani is an American illustrator who has a large number of picture books to her name, many of which are well known songs that preschoolers love, so they are often out of my library. I have just learned via Happy Birthday Author that it is her birthday and as she wasn't on my list I want to add her. I cannot improve upon or add anything to what Eric wrote so go there and look. Lots of activities and ideas for an author study. Also look at Iza's website. The opening illustration is beautiful! Don't you just love Itsy Bitsy Spider drifting down. If you are feeling hard done by or lacking in resilience read the beginning of her biography. No young child deserves that start in life!
