Calling all picture book lovers! The incredible Jason Chin is coming to The Ivy for a book talk and meet & greet!
Jason Chin combines imaginative storytelling with intriguing science to create books that both enchant and educate. He is the author and illustrator of Grand Canyon, which received 2018 Caldecott and Sibert Honors and won the 2018 National Council of Teachers of English Orbis Pictus Award. His other books include Redwoods, Island: A Story of the Galápagos, Gravity and, most recently, Pie is for Sharing by Stephanie Parsley Ledyard. While researching his books, he’s gone swimming with sharks, explored lava fields and camped with scorpions at the bottom of the Grand Canyon. Jason was raised in New Hampshire, studied illustration at Syracuse University, and now lives with his family in Vermont.
In Grand Canyon, rivers wind through earth, cutting down and eroding the soil for millions of years, creating a cavity in the ground 277 miles long, 18 miles wide and more than a mile deep. Home to an astonishing variety of plants and animals that have lived and evolved within its walls for millennia, the Grand Canyon is much more than just a hole in the ground. Follow a father and daughter as they make their way through the cavernous wonder, discovering life both present and past.
“Chin…packs the geologic history of the Grand Canyon into a stunningly illustrated story of a magical father-daughter hike. The duo’s daylong trek out of the magnificent landform becomes a journey through time, as discoveries along the trail transport the girl to various eras in the canyon’s creation.” Publishers Weekly, Starred Review
