In USA Today, Bob Minzesheimer writes a lovely piece about Jerry Pinkney who recently won the Caldecott Medal for his book The Lion & The Mouse. As the first individual African-American to win the Caldecott Medal, Pinkney is an inspiration to other African-American writers and illustrators…even the ones in his family.
His wife, children, and their spouses all work on books in some fashion — illustrating, photo editing, or writing — and they inspire each other. A really sweet story of a family working together to tell powerful stories and reach readers.
