Anne Bustard’s blog, Anneographies, highlights picture book biographies tied to the subject’s birthday. Isn’t that a brilliant idea for a blog? Of course the first thing I did was go to my birthday to see if there was a picture book on one of my birthday twins, Ernest Hemingway or Robin Williams, but alas, July21st was blank. But many other days of the year were filled with some great picture book biography choices like July 16th, my son’s birthday. (He just happens to share it with Ida B. Wells-Barnett) and August 27th, my daughter’s birthday (coincidentally, it is also the birthday of former president Lyndon Baines Johnson.)This is a great blog for teachers to bookmark for when they need ideas for those pesky bulletin boards.
Tell Anne I said hello when you stop by.
