Three Author Birthdays in Three Days

My family and I had so much fun celebrating 3 author birthdays in 3 days on my Happy Birthday Author blog.

We celebrated Lesa Cline-Ransome on July 12. She is the author of The Light in the Darkness, Whales and Trails, Before and Now, and Quilt Counting. After reading, Quilt Counting we made our own pin cushions. Click here to read the blog post.

And yes, I sewed a pin cushion too!

We celebrated Ashley Bryan on July 13. He is the author and illustrator of Let it Shine, Beautiful Blackbird, and Ashley Bryan's Puppets.  We read Puppets and searched for treasures on a beach along Lake Erie. We turned our beach treasures (driftwood, shell, fishing gear, etc.) into puppets. Click here to read the blog post.

We celebrated Brian Selznick on July 14. He is the author and illustrator of The Invention of Hugo Cabret and Wonderstruck. We traveled to Michigan to visit Marvin's Marvelous Mechanical Museum to see real automaton. Click here to read the blog post.

We loved this museum and highly recommend a visit.
