About the Author

Jim Gill

Jim Gill is an author and musician with unique credentials among children's artists. Jim is a child development specialist, completing his graduate studies in child development at the Erikson Institute of Chicago with a special emphasis on the study of play. For this reason, each of Jim's books and recordings is created as an opportunity for playful interactions between a child and a caring adult.

Over the years Jim's CDs and books have received 5 awards from the American Library Association -the same organization that famously grants the Caldecott and Newberry Awards.

Jim travels throughout the country leading family "read-along/sing-along" concerts at reading festivals and literacy events. He also speaks to early childhood educators and librarians at conferences and training sessions about the many connections between music, play and literacy.

A SOUP OPERA, Jim's most recent book release, is a sing-along opera inspired by concerts that Jim performs with symphony orchestras. The book was named a 2010 Notable Children's Book and Recording by the American Library Association.
