About Jim Aylesworth

See more books from this Author
All Jim Aylesworth's stories for young children are filled with rhythm and read-out-loud sound. No surprise. Jim taught first grade for 25 years, and read aloud to his students countless times. He knows what they like to hear - piercing hog calls, nonsensical rhymes, or the shriek of a train cutting through the night. "Writing children's books is my way of being the teacher beyond the walls of my classroom for children that I may never know," Aylesworth says. But the rapt attention of his former students remains his inspiration. Jim Aylesworth lives in Chicago with his wife, Donna. For more information about Jim Aylesworth, and Barbara McClintock is a distinguished illustrator and collaborator with Jim Aylesworth who has three times had her works named The New York Times Best Illustrated. She began drawing as a very young child and was later encouraged by the author/illustrator Maurice Sendak. "He told me how to put together a dummy book and suggested I move to New York" - so she did. McClintock lives in Connecticut. She's had her work exhibited at several art galleries. For more information about Barbara McClintock, visit:
