It was 49 years ago, today, that Jane Yolen had her first book, Pirates in Petticoats, published. That day was her 22nd birthday—what a great birthday present. In honor of Jane Yolen’s 71st birthday and the 300+ books that she has written—winning awards for many—we are celebrating by sharing with you some of her more recent picture books and board books. Happy Birthday, Jane Yolen. We hope you have a wonderful day!

Working from a farm table that doubles as the family dining table in New York City, Carin Berger creates unique combinations of collage, paint, and text that truly are a visual and cognitive treat. She’s an award winning designer, illustrator, and author with an instinctive and artistic flair for dreaming up kid’s books. With 5 notable books under her belt and another on the way, you wouldn’t guess that she never actually set out to be the creator of children’s books.  So, on a beautiful and breezy day in Point Reyes Station, CA, we talked about all things book related, including the path which led her to having her first book Not So True Stories and Unreasonable Rhymes published in 2004 by Chronicle Books.
