Ducks, Chicks, Orangutans, and Sudipta Bardhan-Quallen, Oh My!

Giggles, squeals and questions abounded from the library yesterday when Sudipta Bardhan-Quallen stopped by to read Duck, Duck, Moose!, Orangutangled, and Snoring Beauty to the kindergartners at my son’s school.

And there were even more giggles, squeals and questions when the kindergartners learned that these books were so new that they weren’t even in the library or the bookstore!

Sudipta shared some super cool facts and secrets with the children.

  • Chickens have hips.
  • In Chicks Run Wild, the five chicks represent both hers and the illustrator’s children, and there’s even artwork in the book done by each of their kids!  How cool is that?
  • Sudipta loves mangos.
  • Everything is better with a moose.
  • It does not take Sudipta 100 years to write a picture book. 🙂

It was a wonderful afternoon.  And we’re all hoping (fingers and toes crossed!) that she’ll come back for another visit.
