Book of the Week: A Boy, a Mouse, and a Spider by Barbara Herkert, illustrated by Lauren Castillo
In this book
A picture book biography about E.B. White (author of Charlotte’s Web, Stuart Little, and Trumpet of the Swan), from his sickly childhood to his adult days spent at a typewriter, writing some of the world’s best books for children.
The text of this book reads like a poem, and the illustrations are equally lovely. It’s one of my very favorite picture book biographies![youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ippXlo0hU3s]
All ages, especially 4-8
