Mo Willems - Bird Brained Genius and the SFB 2010

Don't Let the Pigeon Stay Up Late!Okay, I've mentioned Willems 
before, but you weren't reading my blog back then 
(or if you were, you're totally cool with this 
because you love me so much). 
The guy's gifts really work well for early 
readers with or without autism.  Simple 
drawings with direct speech, direct 
engagement of the listener, he even
wrote an emotion primer-
The Pigeon Has Feelings, Too!
Best of all, if you're in the Nashville area,
you and the kids can see him tomorrow
(Saturday) at the Southern Festival
of Books!

Scieszka too!
