Support Your local Library Reading Challenge: Big or Little?



Kathy Stinson is a Canadian author of books for young people.
Stinson's text has a simple and very pleasing rhythm. Lewis' illustrations show a thoughtful and serious little boy working out his place in the world. Cute book! My Grandson loved it. In fact, the boy in the book looks  a little like my grandson! Have you read this one?

The cool thing is that both author and illustrator, Robin Baird Lewis line in Ontario and Toronto.  Plus, they've both been school teachers. Robin also illustrated Kathy's first children's book, RED IS BEST.

Biography

The clue that Kathy Stinson has enjoyed a lifelong love of reading is in the wide range of books she has written. "What you read," she says, "influences what you write. And so does the day to day life that you live."
That's why Kathy's characters ride bikes along dirt paths, fall in love in summer, argue and have cozy chats with parents and friends, sometimes have trouble sleeping, and walk on beaches and city streets.
Kathy says, "It's also fun, as a writer, to imagine yourself into situations unlike your own."
