Hang out with us this summer, at Ezra’s 100th birthday events around town and across the country. In Brooklyn, join us for storytelling every Saturday at 2 p.m. in July and August, at the Peter and Willie statue in Prospect Park. Wherever you are, we hope you’ll stop by!
Ezra’s Hidden Treasures
Pssst, Doggie- and Skates! are wild, nearly wordless fantasies unlike Ezra’s other tales—but if you love his other books, you’ll love these, too!
Clementina’s Cactus is a Keats story unlike any other – it’s told entirely without words! Gorgeous watercolors set the scene, and you supply the text. And enjoy our read-aloud, words and all! Plus: Desert flora, cute cacti, rain makers, and more
Congratulations to the new EJK Book Award winners! Taking top honors are Don Tate as New Writer for Poet: The Remarkable Story of George Moses Horton, and Phoebe Wahl as New Illustrator for Sonya’s Chickens. Read more about them and the new Honor Books!
Mini-Grant season is winding down, but there is still time to put together a great proposal. The 2016 winners will have a Keats theme for Ezra’s 100th birthday, so consider making your “thinking cap” a party hat!
Snowy Day Month has come and gone, but it’s hard to put those snowy days out of mind while winter is still with us. So we’re “celebrating” a little while longer. Enjoy our favorite moments of the year so far, shared with us by fellow Snowy Day fans.
Spend a day In the Park with Ezra—in New York, Paris, Madrid and Moscow! Written by Esther Hautzig, with lively illustrations by Keats, this “Excursion in Four Languages” is a charming, light-hearted romp.
