Probably the most well known advocate in the United States on the topic of early literacy, and the importance of reading to young children, is author and illustrator Rosemary Wells. Her Read to Your Bunny campaign has been replicated in early literacy initiatives throughout the world. Her plea is for parents to read to their child twenty minutes every day, as they are the most important 20 minutes of your day. Rosemary Wells career as an author and illustrator spans more than 30 years and 100 books. She has won numerous awards, and has given readers such unforgettable characters as Max and Ruby, Noisy Nora, McDuff and Yoko. Emilyıs First 100 Days of School made the New York Times Bestseller list. She has also given Mother Goose new life in two enormous, definitive editions. Her latest book, My Kindergarten, relates the exciting and important first school year for children, and contains segments on language, math, science, community, art, music, and holidays.
