Our Story Begins

Elissa Brent Weissman, Kwame Alexander, Tom Angleberger, Kathi Appelt, Ashley Bryan

From award-winning author Elissa Brent Weissman comes a collection of quirky, smart, and vulnerable childhood works by some of today’s foremost children’s authors and illustrators-revealing young talent, the storytellers they would one day become, and the creativity they inspire today.   

Everyone’s story begins somewhere…     

For Linda Sue Park, it was a trip to the ocean, a brand-new typewriter, and a little creative license. For Jarrett J. Krosoczka, it was a third grade writing assignment that ignited a creative fire in a kid who liked to draw. For Kwame Alexander, it was a loving poem composed for Mother’s Day-and perfected through draft after discarded draft.   

For others, it was a teacher, a parent, a beloved book, a word of encouragement. It was trying, and failing, and trying again. It was a love of words, and pictures, and stories.     Your story is beginning, too. Where will it go?
