Henry Cole describes how books are madeEast Rochester Elementary School hosted author and illustrator Henry Cole on May 6. Henry Cole is an author and illustrator who has worked on nearly 150 books for children. Cole’s books are wonderful for teaching student readers lessons of language and life. He most often uses a cartoon-like style with vivid colors.

Students in grades K-5 were captivated by Cole as he described how he began his career and how he creates his art. Students then had a chance to get his autograph and talk to him about their own work inside and outside of the classroom.

Before Cole was an illustrator, he taught science at Langley Elementary School in Virginia. His first book, Some Smug Slug, was published in 1996.
