In addition to the four information books we’re reading this week, there are also three articles from the July/August 2011 Horn Book Magazine related to Dave the Potter:
- Bryan Collier’s Coretta Scott King Award acceptance speech
- Profile of Bryan Collier by Marcia Wernick
- “Dave the Potter and Stevie the Reader” by Megan Lambert
Personally, I love learning about the background of books and hearing how they are used. I also like hearing commentary tracks on DVDs after watching a movie. Does knowing more about the creating process help you appreciate the book more? Or does it take away some of the magic?
