Backlist Spotlight
book title River of Words
written by Jen Bryant; illustrated by Melissa Sweet

Recent flooding from Hurricane Irene in northern New Jersey brings to mind the role that this region (and its rivers) played in shaping the life and poetry of William Carlos Williams. Jen Bryant and Melissa Sweet’s Caldecott Honor-winning picture book biography celebrates the amazing man whose poems about ordinary, everyday things (including the New Jersey landscape) will inspire young readers to create poems of their own.

Get to Know . . .
Soldier Bear Philip Hopman

Philip Hopman was born between Holland’s tulip fields, the youngest son of a tulip farmer. He wasn’t very keen on a career in the tulips, though, so he packed his bags and went off to the Rietveld Academy in Amsterdam in 1979, hoping to try his luck as as fashion designer. This career was short-lived, however. It was after several years of working in an animation film studio that he finally found his true calling as a children’s book illustrator in 1988. Since then, he has illustrated over 150 books, including Bibi Dumon Tak’s Soldier Bear.
