Workshop Presentation by Chris Soentpiet
Mr. Soentpiet is an award-winning illustrator and the recipient of the Parents' Magazine Best Book of the Year for SOMETHING BEAUTIFUL.  His other prestigious honors include the International Reading Assoication Book Award for MORE THAN ANYTHING ELSE, MOLLY BANNAKY & COOLIES which also won the Parents' Choice Gold Award.  In 1996, he received a Gold Medal from the Society of Illustrators, an award judged by fellow illustrators.  Soentpiet's artistic realism earned him the distinction from the Children's Book Council as one of seventy-five author and illustrators everyone should know.  A Korean-born adoptee, his multicultural background and experiences are reflected in his choice of distinct cultural and historical settings for his books.  His multi-cultural books are used in schools to help educators integrate social studies to their classroom lessons.  Visit his website at www.soentpiet.com.
