School Library Journal Review

Gr 2-4-This series invites readers to enjoy a personal yet informal author visit complete with full-color photographs. The brilliance and enthusiasm of Ehlert's art and the excitement of her writing radiate from her personality. Her eyes are always open to a world of color where words and pictures tell a story. Children also catch a glimpse into her daily life and into her childhood photograph album to meet her family and chuckle at her young nephew's original portrait of her. She advises young students to learn everything about art and writing and "keep your eyes open." From thumbnail sketches to final publication, Ehlert takes readers through each step in the publication process, showing her art of collage, communication with her editor, and final manuscript. The text is brief-two to three sentences per page-and the format is open and inviting. A welcome look at a popular author and illustrator.-Patricia Mahoney Brown, Benjamin Franklin Elementary School, Kenmore, NY (c) Copyright 2010.
