Oliver Jeffers, Author Illustrator

We've been reading Oliver Jeffers' stories to our little people for years! I've always loved how quiet and thoughtful they are-- so organically simple & warm. His illustrations are easy for a child to relate to and fun for an adult to enjoy! A couple of our favorite titles are How To Catch A Star, Lost And Found, The Day The Crayons Quit & The Day The Crayons Came Home--- We also love Oliver's new title: Here We Are (fall 2017). Here, Oliver speaks about the book: "it's based on the things I began saying to our newborn son the moment we took him home from the hospital as I gave him a quick tour of our apartment.
 It started off as a book about the realization that new life is a blank slate (trying to explain what a door is, and what a kitchen is for), and the strangeness of being a new parent. But as the book unfolded, so did the global events of the last year or so, and it felt like it became more urgent to reinforce some basic things my parents taught me about the simple principles of humanity. I wanted my son to know that while we are all unique individuals, we are all in this together."

Author, Artist, Illustrator Christopher Corr

Christopher's book Deep In the Woods provided the inspiration for not just one of our introductory Solver6 enrichment series curriculum offerings but TWO! This story book will brighten your world with it's community message of friendship, forgiveness and working together making it a story to read over an over for any age! Christopher has been a great friend to AddyPres as we built our contribution for a better world! We appreciate you Christopher!
