Susan Jeffers makes the retelling of favorite stories for children happen better than ever before as she masterfully creates the pages. She published her first children’s book in 1970 and later was awarded a Caldecott Honor from the American Library Association given to the artist of the most distinguished American Picture Book, for “A Mother Goose Rhyme: THREE JOVIAL HUNTSMEN”. Children study the pages she has adapted and illustrated with details of animals in the woods. They happily see things that the huntsmen in the story miss. This very talented children’s book illustrator is an artist and an animal lover. She has patiently illustrated many children’s books, bringing the pages to life like no one else. Read more about Susan Jeffers and her children’s books here.

The pictures in this story book may capture what it sounds like when a bunny rabbit hops across a snow covered yard. The colors illuminate the characters in an already bright winter scene. When you try to read this story you will see a warming gesture that suggests understanding and compassion on each and every page. Listen to your youngest storyteller read from the careful drawings presented in this very special children’s book and you will have experienced a very special few moments in time with that young child. Bravo, Camille.

The work that is being done with the Jupiter Strong series goes a long way to support children. Kindergarteners, older children, and their parents can stay in the loop of what is happening with Jupiter Strong by finding information on face book or following her on twitter.
