I came across the inspiring story of children’s author/illustrator Jarrett J. Krosoczka this week.
He shares the story of how he became a children’s author/illustrator, starting from his childhood. What I really appreciated about his story are all the individuals who had such a profound impact on him, because it went beyond families to many supportive teachers and even to a simple comment from a visiting author.
I came across this video via the TEDBlog, and so accompanying it was an equally interesting read in Krosoczka’s 10 picks for children’s books that will become classics. You can read it here. Some I recognize, and some I will definitely be checking out in the future.
Tomorrow on the blog I will list some of my favorite children’s books, so be sure to check that out as well.
