Author and illustrator David Ezra Stein is the creator of one of my favorite books dealing with seasons: Leaves, about a young bear experiencing his first fall, is the perfect combination of words and images, both simple and endearing.
His new book, Pouch!, comes out in September and on his website David has added a cool "Making of Pouch!" page that describes the road from idea to final book. It's definitely worth a visit!
Check out his books at your local library!
