Author for November

Our author for November is Lois Elhert. Elhert’s books are remarkable for their wonderful illustrations. She often uses collage in her illustrations, gluing pieces of paper, fabrics or objects to create vivid and colorful pictures to accompany the text. Ehlert has won several awards including the Cauldecott honour for Color Zoo.

Many of Elhert’s books deal are about nature; planting, growing, seasons, weather. She has written two beautifully illustrated books about autumn leaves which we have displayed on our nature table.
