This is an extremely eye catching site! Kevin Henkes is my favorite children's author so I knew I would have fun poking around his site. There are book talks about each book, fun games you can print out, and even recipes so you could have a Lilly and Wemberly party!
My original favorite author website! Full of activities, coloring pages, and videos featuring the characters from her books. Plus a chance to register and win a free school visit!
Includes an 'Eric Carle' store, an interesting link to the Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art, and lots of teacher ideas with use of his books!
Tomie de Paola
Fun answers to every question you ever wanted to know about Tomie! His schedule for the next few months to find out if he will be in your area. I've heard him read aloud from his books before and he it is awesome!
J. K. Rowling
Links to every country where Harry Potter books have been published so you can view the information in lots of different languages! The US link takes you to Scholastic where you can download a screensaver or take part in the Discussion Chamber.
The most well-known nonfiction children's author! Her site includes a 'meet my family' area, a section where you can buy some of the artwork she has used in her books, and a questionnaire on how well you know her books.
A very original and fun site! There are lots of resources for teachers and fun activities for kids. An author that realizes the importance of the web!
Interesting inside information about the creation of her books. Each book does offer follow-up activities for the classroom.
I love this site! It brings back so many memories when I was younger and read all her books! You could easily spend hours exploring this website! It offers quizzes on her characters, a chance to read sample chapters, loads of teacher resources, and a chance to 'explore' the neighborhood where all of cleary's characters reside!
You can sign up to be on her mailing list with a chance to win prizes, find lots of activities with her books including quizzes, read up on the latest news, or shop at the Patricia Polacco store!
I didn't know that my favorite board book author, Sandra Boynton, wrote children's songs too! Definitely worth checking out!
Margaret Wise Brown
A site filled with articles and a preview into her books!
