Elgin Scalzi EDU 225 Author of the Week - Gail Gibbons 1. Gail Gibbons was an interesting person as a youth. One thing that I found interesting was that not only was she interested in writing and drawing, but she used to literally make her own books. She would actually bind her own pages together. It was almost as if she was meant to be a writer from that young. A second interesting fact about her is that she wrote and illustrated over 170 books! That is quite an impressive feat. And as a third intriguing fact, she goes in depth with her research. For two of her books, she went to two tropical rainforests. 2. One book I chose was Penguins . I chose to read this book because penguins are cool and more people should learn about this adorable flightless bird. One way that this is helpful to children is because, as somebody who works with children, almost all children love penguins. This book is an informative book about an intriguing animal, which could get them to do their own research on birds.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
