I am a little jealous. And i admit it.
Benjamin's poem I am Odd, i am New was turned into a picture book.
I have written many poems that could be turned into picture books - but haven't been, at least as of yet.
I met Benjamin Giroux at the Family Book Festival held this past summer at the John Brown Farm in Lake Placid. The above picture is of Ben signing books.
I do want to laud this young man's success. This heartfelt poem that Ben Giroux wrote when he was just ten describes what it feels like to be on the autism spectrum. Roz MacLean beautifully illustrates the book. WELL DONE, BEN!
A good book, a comfy chair,
