Reviews

"Barner's children's books include such titles as Dem Bones, Stars, Stars, Stars and Bugs! Bugs! Bugs!, and here he provides the backstage view of how he created them. He describes how he grew up and became an artist and author, how he works daily, how he keeps his idea files and sketches, whether the pictures or words come first, how he gets his work on paper, and how others can use his methods in their own creative processes. He then gives activities for each book and also gives a little inside information about the movie of Dem Bones. The result is a classroom visit on paper." - Reference & Research Book News
