There are so many great children's authors out there...and so many of them have great websites with activities you can do with kids after they have read their book. Here are some of my favs:
Eric Carle - The Very Hungry Caterpillar, The Very Quiet Cricket,among many other great books.
Patricia Polacco - Pink and Say, Thank you Mr. Falker, Betty Doll - Her books are beautiful! I have had to wipe tears away while reading some of them. She writes a lot from personal experience.
Shel Silvertein - His poems and illustration and funny and imaginative...We have almost all of his books...my favorite is A Giraffe and a Half.
Jan Brett - The Mitten, The Hat, Trouble With Trolls - Her illustrations are beautiful. She has an amazing website with over 4000 coloring and activity pages for kids to print out.
Don and Audrey Wood - The Napping House, Quick As Cricket
Hope you enjoyed Children's Book Week!
