More About Jr. Martin Bill & Greg Shed

Bill Martin, Jr. Bill Martin, Jr. didn't learn to read until he reached college, yet he earned a doctorate in education from Northwestern University. He has long been committed to the development of children's reading skills. He is one of the world's foremost authors in literary education, as well as a million-selling author of books including " Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?, Chicka Chicka, Boom Boom, " and " Polar Bear, Polar Bear, What Do You Hear?." His latest release, " Adam, Adam, What Do You See? ", is available from Tommy Nelson.

No one would dispute that Bill Martin had a direct link to the minds of young children. Their classic Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?, as well as the works they have created separately - Bill Martin’s Sounds of Language is a testament to his ability to enter a child’s world.

But as children, both Martin had trouble coping with school. These troubles stopped him from learning to read. “I couldn't really read until I turned twenty,” he says. “But when I got to college” - no entrance exams were required at Emporia State University, Kansas at the time - “I wanted to be a writer.” One beloved teacher there gave him the encouragement he needed to pursue his dream. “If you're going to be a writer, you have to be a reader,” he told Martin. Bill Martin not only became a reader, a writer, and a poet, but earned his doctoral degree in early childhood education as well.

Bill Martin lived in Campbell, in the state of Texas. Bill Martin was born in 1916 and died in 2004.
