learning about children’s authors

by | Mar 17, 2009 | Daily life

When I was a child, The Very Hungry Caterpillar was one of my favorite children’s books, along with the popular Goodnight Moon and perhaps less well-known The Story About Ping. Throughout the years I have picked up bits of biographical knowledge about certain children’s authors like Beatrice Potter,  Lewis Carroll and L. Frank Baum, but this Newsweek article taught me a little more about a man, his illustrations and a book that has been delighting children for 40 years.
