In case you didn’t know, I’m a giant. Don’t believe me? Check out how tall I am compared to these other very talented writers and artists! (Y’know, the shrimps?) Oh, and this is at Portland’s coolest bookstore, A Children’s Place. The event was a celebration of the new book, Oregon Reads Aloud – A Collection of 25 Children’s Stories by Oregon Authors & Illustrators. The book is a tribute to twenty-five years of SMART’s (Start Making a Reader Today) work empowering Oregon children for reading and learning success. Oregon Reads Aloud proudly features “the state’s rich trove of talent within the children’s literary community.”
