Stephanie Graegin spent her childhood drawing and collecting fauna. These days, she lives in Brooklyn, is still drawing, and has managed to keep her animal collection down to one orange cat.
With words and images, the best of picture books draw you into to the story. They lead you into new rooms. Once there, you join the community of children gathering around Miss Rumphuis. And while you listen to her “stories of faraway places,” you help yourself to a cookie.
During the holiday season it’s a great joy to share family traditions and spend time together. Every year, I look forward to reading these beloved books.
