Lee was my first youngsters’s e book mentor and continues to offer me encouragement and recommendation. She is wise, humorous, beneficiant and explains issues SO nicely. No surprise her faculty visits and Skypevisits are so widespread! Lee was additionally the one who first launched me to high school Skypevisits, gave me suggestions.
Lee was my “Ask The Kids’s E book Writer” columnist in Inklings, my electronic mail publication for writers again within the days I ran a web site referred to as Inkspot again then (anybody on the market do not forget that web site?).
Lee has received quite a few prestigious awards, together with the Lee Bennett Hopkins Kids’s Poetry Award and the Myra Cohn Livingston Poetry Award (each for Received Ton – A Cat Story Informed in Haiku). Her books have additionally been honored by the American Library Affiliation, the Worldwide Studying Affiliation, the Kids’s E book Council, the Nationwide Council of the Social Research, the Nationwide Council of Lecturers of English, Financial institution Road School of Schooling, the Worldwide College Librarians Affiliation, and extra.
THANK YOU, LEE!!!
