2013 Ezra Jack Keats New Writer And New Illustrator Book Awards Winners Announced

And Then It's Spring is illustrated by Erin E. Stead.

Says Fogliano, "I was struggling to find an idea for a children's book, and a friend challenged me by asking me to create a thought of the day for him for every day of the year to get inspired. On day 156, I was in my yard and, even though it was April, there was no sign of grass growing anywhere. Suddenly, inspiration struck... And Then It's Spring ‛grew' from there."

The 2013 Ezra Jack Keats New Illustrator Award Winner Is:

Hyewon Yum for Mom, It's My First Day of Kindergarten!

Published by: Frances Foster Books/ Farrar Straus Giroux Books for Young Readers, an imprint of Macmillan Children's Publishing Group

First day of kindergarten jitters may be nothing new, but in Yum's book, it's a parent who is frantic and needs reassuring! Playfully using color and size (Mom and son take turns appearing small and blue-tinted; large and rosy pink), this author-illustrator captures the emotional highs and lows of both parent and child around this milestone.

"My book is based on a true story," said Yum, who wrote and illustrated her book. "My son was going off to kindergarten and I was a new mommy. I felt like the five-year-old—he wasn't afraid, but I was nervous. I thought it was better to draw what we were feeling, so I drew the mom in the book small and blue at first and the son large and rosy. Their colors and sizes change as they each get more and less brave throughout the day. My own son said, ‛Mom, that's not how you are!' He didn't even notice how nervous I was."
