Happy Birthday, Patricia Polacco

Today is the 60th birthday of artist and children's book author Patricia Polacco.

Ms. Polacco's amazing book Pink and Say remains one of the most moving things I have ever read. Ever. I don't think I have ever read this book without crying. On one of our first trips to Oklahoma, I read it aloud to my sister and we were both in tears by the end.

Today, I will wish Ms. Polacco a blessed birthday and will think of Pinkus Aylee and be grateful she shared his story.
