Sarah Sullivan's insight:

An interesting article with author/illustrator Jon Klassen in School Library Journal on the day "This Is Not My Hat" released.  I enjoyed the ink blot question, as his answer is very different from mine, as well as him answering what he thinks happened at the end of his first book "I Want My Hat Back".

Oh man, mixing inblots and children together who be such a super fun time. I’d love to see what kinds of things they’d see in the inkblots.
Sarah Sullivan's comment, April 29, 2013 7:32 AM
I know, right? I'm fascinated by how people see different things in those blots - and I bet kids would have some great responses!

This is a link to Jon Klassen's Tumblr page, wherein he posts illustrations or other projects he's done, sneak peaks to upcoming works, and upcoming tour dates.  I'm looking forward to checking out the just released book he illustrated for Lemony Snicket, entitled "The Dark".  Will this be an award winner in 2014?

Tumblr seems to be a really popular blogging site for authors - I know YA author John Green posts on his Tumblr religiously (not that I follow his every move or anything...!).
Sarah Sullivan's comment, April 26, 2013 1:04 PM
It is almost like Tumblr is for people who are too busy to blog (or who really like to use cute/funny gifs)! They are wonderful though for getting to know the authors behind the books a little better though!

I haven't read any of Klassen's books yet, but I love The Road, and it's pretty cool to think about a children's book illustrator being moved by it to make art.

Sarah Sullivan's insight:

Great thoughts regarding the lesson behind both "I Want My Hat Back" and "This is Not My Hat" and the power behind perspective in literature.  As expressed in the comments section of this post, these books could be used in a lesson for older children when teaching how perspective can change the whole story.

Thank you so much for including this! I feel like I'm always struggling to find ways to make story-times more interactive, and including programming ideas in this page is perfect!
