Illustrator Betsy Lewin speaks at the 2006 National Book Festival.
Speaker Biography: Caldecott-Honor winning illustrator Betsy Lewin wanted to be an artist ever since she was a little girl. She attributes her passion for children's books to her mother, a kindergarten teacher, who read to her and her brother every night. Lewin is the illustrator of the award-winning "Click, Clack, Moo: Cows That Type" (Simon & Schuster, 2000) and its New York Times best-selling sequels "Giggle, Giggle, Quack; Duck for President" and "Dooby Dooby Moo" (Simon & Schuster, 2006) -- all written by Doreen Cronin. Lewin lives in Brooklyn, N.Y.
