Video of the Week: Caldecott Medalist Jon Klassen on Picture Books
5 Things I Love About This Video
1. The first thing I look at when I see Jon in person or in a video is his hat. :)
2. "I think this is the luckiest job." -Jon Klassen
3. You can see Lauren Castillo, Paul Rodeen, and Lori Kilkelly in the background getting ready for Lauren's signing for Yard Sale. (Sherri Duskey Rinker makes an appearance at 1:26.)
4. Scholastic's "Open a World of Possible" campaign is highly visible during the interview.
5. Jon inspired me to re-read Sam and the Firefly.
