More About Alison Inches

Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! Don Freeman was born in San Diego, California, in 1908. At an early age, he received a trumpet as a gift from his father. He practiced obsessively and eventually joined a California dance band. After graduating from high school, he ventured to New York City to study art under the tutelage of Joan Sloan and Harry Wickey at the Art Students' League. He managed to support himself throughout his schooling by playing his trumpet evenings, in nightclubs and at weddings.
Gradually, he eased into making a living sketching impressions of Broadway shows for "The New York Times" and "The Herald Tribune." This shift was helped along, in no small part, by a rather heartbreaking incident: he lost his trumpet. One evening, he was so engrossed in sketching people on the subway, he simply forgot it was sitting on the seat beside him. This new career turned out to be a near-perfect fit for Don, though, as he had always loved the theater.
He was introduced to the world of children's literature when William Saroyan asked him to illustrate several books. Soon after, he began to write and illustrate his own books, a career he settled into comfortably and happily. Through his writing, he was able to create his own theater: "I love the flow of turning the pages, the suspense of what's next. Ideas just come at me and after me. It's all so natural. I work all the time, long into the night, and it's such a pleasure. I don't know when the time ends. I've never been happier in my life!"
Don died in 1978, after a long and successful career. He created many beloved characters in his lifetime, perhaps the most beloved among them a stuffed, overall-wearing bear named Corduroy.
Don Freeman was the author and illustrator of many popular books for children, including "Corduroy," "A Pocket for Corduroy," and the Caldecott Honor Book "Fly High, Fly Low."

Alison Inches currently resides in Mill Valley, in the state of California.

Cute Story and a Pre-reading Practice Book - a review of "Dizzy's Bird Watch"  Jul 31, 2006
This is a nice little book about Bob the Builder and his buddies. In this story -you might recognize the plot from television series-- Dizzy finds a nest and becomes involved with a little blue egg that sits in it. The whole crew is around from the hatching to when the little bird becomes big enough to fly on it's own. The story concludes with cheers for Dizzy who feels like she's an auntie to the baby bird.

Plot aside, this book provides reading practice for the pre-reading set as it is one of those books that has icons that replace some of the words.

The way that we have been using it is that dad or I reads the story, following the print with our finger, pausing at the icons for our son so that he can decipher the picture and join in the 'reading fun'.

Our son is now four, but by doing this, even younger children can figure out that sentences are read from left to right, and top to bottom, from page to page: All valuable reading skills. For a child of three or four years of age you might even find that they will begin to site read whole words.

Four Stars. Wall to wall color: the whole page is filled with colorful pictures. Nice story about Dizzy and an egg which hatches. Okay read-aloud. One downside is that the icon for the mama bird and the baby look overly similar. Still children like the story and can learn many pre-reading skills. Don't be surprised if they memorize the text.

Note: Another reviewer noted that this book was a good beginning primer, but I'd have to disagree. There is considerable dialog in this book (which is a nice thing in general) and I don't think (having a reading 6 year old) that words such as the following are standard choices for beginning readers: found, chirp, place, machines, bounce, meow, cement mixer.
A great early reader!  Jan 31, 2002
I picked this up while on vacation for my 4-year-old daughter. She is quite a good reader at this point, and enjoys reading this book. It is written with easy to read language, but not to the point of being uninteresting for the child. I am especially pleased that the featured character, Dizzy, is female. This is sadly lacking in many children's books. Look for "Wendy Helps Out" for an equally great book.
