Children's Book Authors Displays by Education Students

Stop by the Curriculum Resource Center in Albertsons Library this week to see children's book author projects created by students in Dr. Stan Steiner's Children’s Literature class. Dr. Seuss, Dav Pilkey (author of Captain Underpants series), Chris Van Allsburg (author of Jumanji), Eric Carle, Roald Dahl, and Idaho author Patrick McManus are just a few of the authors represented.

Margie Ruppel, Reference Librarian, taught students in this class how to locate children's literature and author information earlier in Spring 2010. Students then created displays about children's books and their authors that appeal to students in grades K-12, including brief bibliographies and lesson plans.
