#LoveTeachers: Mark Teague

When I think about Mark Teague, there isn’t one book that comes immediately to mind. Instead, I’m reminded of Ike LaRue, the letter-writing dog, and his lively notes to his human, Mrs. LaRue. I’ve always been a fan of the tall tale in How I Spent My Summer Vacation. And, of course, I remember the wonderful How Do Dinosaurs… books by him and Jane Yolen. Has learning manners and good behavior ever been more fun?

When we asked Mark about what he thinks makes a great teacher, he simply replied, “The best teachers make it look easy.”

I agree, but I also think great illustrators make it look easy!
