Didn’t know this picture was being taken… This was last week, in Madison, Wisconsin. I was there to speak at a symposium which would follow the awarding of an honor named after my mother: the Charlotte Zolotow Award, which goes to the best children’s book TEXT (as opposed to illustrations, which is what the Caldecott recognizes) published in the previous year. This was before the awards (this year to Bao Phi’s A DIFFERENT POND) and the annual lecture (this year given by Benjamin Alire Saenz, here as @border_poet ), and I was looking up at a huge screen that had several repeating slides about my mother in her work and her relationship to Madison (she attended school here for three years) and a couple of stunning pictures taken of her when young. As I age, I am more and more and filled with wonder at the places we take or are asked to take in this life. Being her daughter and literary executor and all the skeins and connections, which knit me yet not only to her and her work, but to children and educators the world over. The strangeness and wonder of all this, I will probably never get over it, at least as long as I have memory. And I don’t want to get over it. What a privilege this being alive is, even with all its rough dark places and threats.Photograph, Mark Graff. #charlottezolotow #baophi #madisonwisconsin #kidlit #kiditart #writingforchildren #benjaminsliresaenz #noticing

Simple yet compelling, conversational and calming.  There is a lot to love about this large format book for babies...

A wee close up of one of the mini botanical paper cuts I made for the page. It’s around 2cm tall and I wish I’d make a second to put in a miniature frame!

My husband said that everything I draw is round which, let’s face it, is true 😂  So today I went for a squared bear! It does look a bit like a toast but toasts are gooooood 😜
