A River of Words: WCW For Kids

More William Carlos Williams comes my way via Laura Shovan's blog Author Amok...

One of this year’s Caldecott Honor books (awarded to children’s picture books) is a biography of Williams.

A River of Words: The Story of William Carlos Williams is written by poet Jen Bryant with mixed-media illustrations by Melissa Sweet that are embedded with the words of some Williams’ poems.

Laura interviewed Bryant on her blog and asked about winning the award, working with an illustrator, and why William Carlos Williams is someone kids should know about.
