Author of the Month. . Chris Van Allsburg

I remember the first time my college professor read us the Polar Express.  I had not heard of the book before.  She passed out silver bells with purple ribbons and told us to always remember that someone believed in us.  I did the same each year with my students and my children.  I was and still am fascinated by Chris Van Allsburg and his amazing illustrations.

Chris Van Allsburg has a wonderful website filled with his books, how he got started in art, and updates on his life.  There are many activities on my Pinterest Board using his books across the curriculum. There is a great interview on Reading Rockets about his life.

Enjoy reading his books this December.
