Cover art of The Story of FerdinandFrom Christmas classics and favorite Christmas picture books to the best Hanukkah and Kwanzaa books, plus a lot of author and illustrator birthdays, my December Calendar of Children's Books is growing. Bookmark it and keep coming back to see what I've added. A few of the authors and illustrators with December birthdays include Munro Leaf, author of The Story of Ferdinand, Mary Norton, author of The Borrowers, and Jerry Pinkney, who won the 2010 Randolph Caldecott Medal for picture book illustration for The Lion and the Mouse.
