Little Bear (L.B.), Creative Director, is the creative force behind The Beauty of Picture Books Blog, established in October 2010. He was also the organizer of National Picture Book Week, a week-long celebration of picture books in May 2011.

Here are just a few of Little Bear's contributions to The Beauty of Picture Books:

  • Organized, hosted and read at a Story Time event in celebration of picture books (Click here to see some photos from Little Bear's big event!)
  • Starred in the official National Picture Book Week video (posted at the bottom of this page)
  • Helped create The Beauty of Picture Books Website and Blog
  • Learned to type with his bear hands just to contribute to The Beauty of Picture Books Blog (L.B.'s first blog post: "A Little Bear's Love of Picture Books")
  • Created The Beauty of Picture Books Bookstore

Beyond his work with picture books, Little Bear assists Jeff Novick with his nutritional videos and lectures. L.B.'s other accomplishments include earning a black belt in karate and riding a famous cat at the Ernest Hemingway Home and Museum. (Click here to see L.B. playing with Archibald MacLeish.)
