Check It Out! Week of March 16th



This week, we celebrate the March 31st birthday of author/illustrator, Steve Jenkins!

Jenkins is the Caldecott Honor-winning author/illustrator of the book, “What Do You Do With a Tail Like This?” (2003).  He has written and/or illustrated over 30 non-fiction titles.  Jenkins was inspired to create science books by the questions his children asked him when they were young.

In grades K-5, we will look at a variety of his books, including “Actual Size” and “Never Smile at a Monkey.”  The students will also watch a short video of Jenkins creating his cut paper illustrations in his studio for his recent book, “The Animal Book.”
