Here is the Robert’s Snow illustrator-and-snowflake feature schedule for Tuesday, October 16 (pictured here is Anna Alter’s ‘04 snowflake, “A Cat in the Snow”). In this below schedule, the illustrator’s name links to his/her website, but click on the blog to be taken to that blogger’s snowflake/illustrator feature:
Did everyone see yesterday’s features? They were a fabulous start to this whole effort. Maybe each day I can pick out one moment to highlight (if I had more hours in the day, I’d do more): One excellent moment from yesterday, other than seeing Grace Lin’s smiling face and all the great write-ups, was Kevin Hawkes telling Cynthia Lord (here) that illustrators “bring the greatest art to children’s books” and that “children truly deserve that.”
Please note that I have started a page here at 7-Imp that includes a comprehensive listing of all the snowflake/illustrator features. You can see it here. At the end of each day, I’ll add the daily schedule and will leave it here for all posterity at 7-Imp, as a record of all the bloggers’ hard work and talents — and as a handy resource on illustrators for Picture Book Nerds like me to enjoy.
One more final note: I can’t possibly count all the bloggers who have been talking up this Blogging for a Cure effort, and I thank you all (according to the ever-informative Tracy Grand at JacketFlap, 169 posts about Robert’s Snow were posted mid-day yesterday!). But one post worth noting, as it involves the creation of a snowflake by, well, a stuffed elephant, is here at Ellsworth’s Journal, via author Candice Ransom.
That’s it for now. Enjoy the posts. And go buy a snowflake already . . .
