The Story of "Ready to Read Michigan"

The Library of Michigan’s Ready to Read Michigan program encourages reading aloud regularly to children during the early stages of life (birth up to age 5), as it ensures the development of early literacy skills and instills a love of reading.  The program is designed for public librarians to model early literacy skill development directly to families and engage in outreach to early childhood centers, classrooms and daycares throughout their community.

Support

 This program is made possible by grant funds
from the U.S. Institute of Museum and Library Services (
IMLS) administered by the State of Michigan through the Library of Michigan.
Additional support provided by Bloomsbury Publishing, Consumers Energy
and the Library of Michigan Foundation.

Ready to Read Michigan

T
The Library of Michigan is pleased to announce the 2020
"Ready to Read Michigan" book selection A Parade of Elephants
written and illustrated by Kevin Henkes


 

SUMMARY

Follow five joyful elephants as they march about their day,
counting and exploring opposites from dawn to dusk.
Kevin Henkes’ simple, repetitive text and
carefully constructed illustrations using beautifully muted colors
encourage young children to develop a sense of spatial awareness.

 

MEET THE AUTHOR & ILLUSTRATOR: Kevin Henkes

Biography

“I’ve been writing and illustrating children’s books for thirty years.
It’s the only real job I’ve ever had.

When my work is going well, it’s transformative.
I feel as if I’ve been removed from ordinary time
and am living in some parallel universe, a world of grace and wonder.

Books are often the first exposure to art that children have.
Keeping that in mind urges me to make the very best books possible.
I know how important the books from my childhood were (and are)
to me. Without them, I might not be a writer and artist today.

Sometimes I’ll hear from a parent about how a book of mine has insinuated itself
into the heart of his or her child, or how a phrase from one of my books has
become part of the family’s daily jargon.
I love that.
But most of all, I love sitting alone in a quiet room drawing
and painting and writing. I love my job.”
