Our friend Carrie from Pittsburgh Arts and Lectures Black, White, and Read All Over author series forwarded this to me:
"I was checking out Oprah’s new kids reading list, developed with the help of ALA, and Katherine Ayres’ picture book Up, Down and Around is the featured book for Ages 3-5. "
Katherine Ayres' book was the 2008 selection for Pennsylvania's One Book, Every Young Child program. And she's from Pittsburgh!
