Children's Author Spotlight: Margaret Wise Brown

Today I'd like to share with you another of our favourite authors. Margaret Wise Brown lived from 1910-1952, and in that time wrote hundreds of books for children. She wrote about things that children wanted to read about, the things that happened to them in their own lives. She was a pioneer in this respect, moving away from the traditional fairy tale and fable styles of storytelling.

  1. I love her stories and poems and so do the kids. They are like comfort food at the end of a long day.

  2. So true, Karen. Like warm apple pie with a slice of cheddar cheese!
