More on An Egg Is Quiet.

April 10th, 2007

I was on the Cybils committee that selected An Egg Is Quiet as the distinguished nonfiction picture book for 2006. Now playing on the Cybils blog is my committee-mate Kris Bordessa‘s interview with the book’s illustrator, Sylvia Long.

Kris: Why do you think it is important for today’s children to be exposed to the beauty of nature through books such as this?

Sylvia: More and more, it seems that children’s education takes place only in the classroom, online, or on TV. To get excited about nature, they have to be out In it — with someone who has passion for it, and knowledge about it. Once they start to look, they’ll see how amazing it is.
