Bringing the multicultural, creative spirit of Ezra Jack Keats
into children's lives and literature
We can't stop celebrating!
There’s the 2016 EJK Book Award, whose winners have just been announced!. Each year I am gratified all over again when this award that means so much to us is met with such excitement. I look forward to spending time with this group of talented new writers and illustrators in Hattiesburg, Mississippi, in April.
Then there’s African-American History Month. Take a look at the new additions to our recommended picture books, which tell stories we all need to know.
100 Days of Ezra
Let us know about your plans for Ezra’s100th and we’ll add it to our calendar! Then use our Birthday Kit to make it a blast and share your celebration with us!
Speaking of Keats, a reminder to put Ezra's 100th on your calendar. In the classroom or living room, find a moment to say with your kids, "Happy birthday, Ezra!" Such a small gesture, and a loving tribute.
