This week, we celebrate our last illustrator birthday for the school year.

Kadir Nelson is an award-winning author/illustrator of (mostly) historical picture books. We will read his 2008 Caldecott Honor Book, “Henry’s Freedom Box,” “Baby Bear,” and snippets of “We Are the Ship: The Story of Negro League Baseball.” We will also be watching some clips of Kadir talking¬†about being an artist, his advice for kids looking to become artists, and more.
