Happy Birthday to Gail Gibbons

Gail Gibbons was born on this day in 1944. Her books have found a home in my classroom and are wonderful tools for introducing concepts in science and social studies. I am constantly impressed by her ability to take seemingly difficult concepts and make them accessible to children. You can view some of the books in my collection over here. You can also learn more about this talented author by viewing her video interview at Reading Rockets.

The author provides a wonderful teacher's guide over at her web site. Do head on over and check it out.
Happy Birthday, Ms. Gibbons! Thanks for all you do to make nonfiction engaging for kids.
