Today is the birthday of some favorite authors: Mildred Taylor, Else Homelund Minarik, and Mildred Taylor. Today is also MY birthday.
Check out these authors in your nearest library. Children like to connect their own birthday to the birthday of authors/illustrators or other notable people. Read a book by an author or illustrator who shares the same birthday as he/she does OR read a book about some historical person who was born on the same day as he/she was.
Visit this page on the Kids Read site for a list of some author/illustrator's birthdays -- www.kidsreads.com/authors/author-bdays.asp
