I Wish Mo Willems and Kevin Henkes had Signed it as Well

reading children's authors

Last week over one hundred children’s authors and illustrators — including Rosemary Wells, Maya Angelou, Sandra Boynton, Jane Yolen, and Judy Blume — signed an open letter to President Obama protesting overdependence on standardized testing in schools.

Unfortunately, they did not illustrate it.

I hope you read a great book with your kids tonight.  When you’re finished, check out the the full text of the letter here.
