    I have an Authors Corner in my room. Every couple of weeks I change the featured author. It could be Dr. Suess, Eric Carle, Leo Leoni, Lois Ebhert, Marc Brown etc.... Only books by the featured author are on that shelf. I usually put a picture of the author up with his name. The book orders from scholastic have had an authors picture and a short interview in them each month. We have wrtten letters to authors letting them know that we appreciate the work they do. We have recieved many nice letters back! It is great that the children can see the face behind the books. We read the story as a group and discuss what we liked, what we didn't and what we would change about the book. We do many art & writing activites based on the auhor of the week. We have a "publishing company" at our school and at the end of the year our "featured authors" are the children in the class. Our school library/PTA also has authors visit the school to read and talk with the children. Hope this helps....
