Even at the battle of Normandy, Ashley Bryan always had his sketchbook with him. Since then, he has illustrated more than 50 children’s books, been honored with both the Coretta Scott King and Laura Ingalls Wilder Awards, and had a school named after him.
Ashley Bryan and Antrese Wood talk about story telling, African folk tales, puppets and the wisdom that comes from elders and small children.
