In Her Own Words...
"Throughout my childhood I was encouraged to make pictures, tell stories, act, and dance—all of this at a heaven in our New York City neighborhood called the Bronx House.
"On Saturdays I painted with a crusading art director, Florence Cane. In her book The Growth of the Child Through Art, I appear under the name Linda. I was sixteen when the book appeared and embarrassed by it. But at age nine I had been totally proud when a painting of mine was exhibited at the Museum of Modern Art and I was later shown in the Movietone News explaining to Eleanor Roosevelt its Yiddish title, "Yentas."
"In 1945 I went to Black Mountain College in North Carolina, a unique educational community. I graduated in 1949 in graphic art, which I studied with Josef Albers. Along the way I planted corn, made butter, worked on the printing press, and helped to build the house in which I lived with Paul Williams, a fellow student I married there.
"I wanted that connection of art and community to continue. And it did at the Gate Hill Cooperative, a community we built with other Black Mountain people—a poet, musicians, and potters. I lived and worked there from 1953-1970 (after which I moved to Canada). My children (Sarah, Jenny, and Merce) grew up there. For them, we branched out into a school, part of the Surnmerhill movement. The gingerbread houses that led to my first book for Greenwillow I first made in sticky variety at our school. I have always liked to teach, and have taught art, cooking, writing, and nature study, for nursery age on.
"At forty-six, no longer married, living in a houseboat on the bay at Vancouver, British Columbia, I did my first book. But before that could happen, the fates decreed a stint of cooking and running a bakery at a small school in the Ontario countryside. My love affair with Canada included also a 500-mile trip on the Yukon River. Many of those adventures I put in Three Days on a River in a Red Canoe.
"I also write and draw for adults-short stories, leaflets, and posters. As a lover of children, I try to do what I can to help save their earth from nuclear disaster. This pursuit, too, has added its excitement to my biography, including, in 1981, a month's stay in the federal penitentiary in Alderson, West Virginia (an outcome of a women's peaceful blockade of the Pentagon). Perhaps this experience will some day appear in one of my books. So far I've found children's books a wonderfully accommodating medium where any of my various activities might pop up."
Vera B. Williams currently resides in the state of New York.
Reviews - What do customers think about "More More More," Said the Baby (A Caldecott Honor book)?
I love this book. Jun 10, 2008
I love this book, as does my daughter. When I first picked it up, I thought the language was odd, but it really grew on me. This book actually chokes me up when I read it; it is so warm and sweet and beautiful. My daughter loved it as a baby, and still likes it now and then at age 3. The illustrations are wonderful too.
A Favorite for everyone! Great for families that "don't match" May 22, 2008
This book is not only charming, it is also illustrated with pictures of loving families which may not be biologically related to each other-- and not a word is said about it! As an adoptive famiily, we have lots of adoption-related picture books, but it is nice to just have a fun comforting book which shows that loving families come in all colors and they don't need to "match"!
This has been a favorite gift book for me--I give this book to all kinds of families with babies and toddlers and everyone loves it!
For Everyone Mar 31, 2008
A timeless book about love, this book is for every reader. It should be read and reread by all children(that's all of us) and parents(no matter the age of your children). The book is great poetry,too. The illustration is bright and sunny.It will cheer you up and catch you up.
My 2 yr old loves it! Jan 8, 2008
Great illustrations, good multicultural representation, and a fun, sing-songy text. My daughter likes to say and do the sign for "more" everytime we come to the word.
Great story Feb 7, 2007
The story of loving families is wonderful. My kids love it. The print color is odd and the wording is unusual, but after you read it through once its not a problem.
