Students at Porters Point School met with author and illustrator Jason Chin on April 5. (For more information about Chin, visit http://www.jasonchin.net/illustration/books-redwoods.php.)
Chin was nominated for the 2010–2011 Red Clover Award for his book Redwoods. The award, for which ten titles are nominated annually, promotes the reading and discussion of contemporary picture books. Children in grades K–4 from around Vermont read (or are read) the nominated books and then vote for their favorite.
