Kids Love Books!!

Author Erik Brooks Wins Award

Angela Morris - Monday, September 19, 2011

Washington Center for the Book announces 2011 Washington State book Award Winners!

 

Last week it was announced that one of our own local authors, Erik Brooks, won the Scandiuzzi Children’s Book Award in the category of picture book for writing and illustrating “Polar Opposites”.  Congratulations Erik!

 

 NCRL has had a long relationship with Erik Brooks who lives in Winthrop, WA.  He has been our Summer Reading Program author in residence several times and in 2009 he collaborated with area children to write “The Adventures of Super Princess Madam Zorony”.  Erik wrote and illustrated this book with the help of children at every branch he visited that summer by facilitating a brainstorming session at every program.  It was so cool to watch the kids collaborating with a real author!

A few of Erik’s wonderful books that he wrote and illustrated are:

“The Practically Perfect Pajamas”

“Slow Days, Fast Friends”

“Octavius Bloom and the House of Doom”

      

He also illustrates books for other authors including Betsy Byers’ “Boo’s Dinosaur and his latest collaboration with Laura Hulbert “Who Has These Feet”.  You can find out more about Erik Brooks artwork and books at www.erikbrooks.com.

 

   

 

NCRL is especially proud that Erik created our logo for our library storytimes “Links to Literacy”.  You may have seen these beautiful pictures of lynx in your branch library, on our delivery vans, bookmobile and now on library cards!

             

We are so lucky to have this kind of talent in our area!  What’s your favorite Erik Brook’s book?

Children's literature has its roots in the stories and songs that adults told their children before publishing existed, as part of the wider oral tradition. Because of this it can be difficult to track the development of early stories. Thanks a lot.

Ferguson will have funds to spend
lebron 10 shoe
Ferguson will be hoping the money is there for another bid to buy Arsenal captain Robin van Persie, as he has already missed out on the signing of Brazil starlet Lucas Moura to PSG.
Many United fans has been critical over the clubs u-turn on their claim that all money raised from the sale would be used to reduce the club’s debt, but the Glazer family have now made a reported £75million out of it – about half of the money raised.
“We fully understand and the owners fully understand that what happens on the pitch is crucial to us and we will make sure there are sufficient funds to invest in the team going forward,” he said.
“The level of debt that we've had at the club since they've taken over hasn't impacted on what we've done as a team,” he added.
