Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende

Don Freeman was born in San Diego, California, in 1908. At an early age, he received a trumpet as a gift from his father. He practiced obsessively and eventually joined a California danceband. After graduating from high school, he ventured to New York City to study art under the tutelage of Joan Sloan and Harry Wickey at the Art Students' League. He managed to support himself throughout his schooling by playing his trumpet evenings, in nightclubs and at weddings.

Gradually, he eased into making a living sketching impressions of Broadway shows for The New York Times and The Herald Tribune. This shift was helped along, in no small part, by a rather heartbreaking incident; he lost his trumpet. One evening, he was so engrossed in sketching people on the subway, he simply forgot it was sitting on the seat beside him. This new career turned out to be a near-perfect fit for Don, though, as he had always loved the theater.

He was introduced to the world of Childrens' Literature, when William Saroyan asked him to illustrate several books. Soon after, he began to write and illustrate his own books, a career he settled into comfortably and happily. Through his writing, he was able to create his own theater: "I love the flow of turning the pages, the suspense of what's next. Ideas just come at me and after me. It's all so natural. I work all the time, long into the night, and it's such a pleasure. I don't know when the time ends. I've never been happier in my life!"

Don died in 1978, after a long and successful career. He created many beloved characters in his lifetime, perhaps the most beloved among them a stuffed, overall-wearing bear, named Corduroy.

Don Freeman was the author and illustrator of many popularbooks for children, including Corduroy, A Pocket for Corduroy, and theCaldecott Honor Book Fly High, Fly Low. For more information about Don Freeman, please visit:

A Quiet Book With a Big Heart 17. November 2010
Von Heather Ivester - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
I checked this book out from our library recently and brought it home to read to my children. It stood out to me among the thousands of picture books I read every year as a book with heart -- and a rich narrative behind the creation of it.

The story takes place in autumn in Washington DC. A gray squirrel named Earl must scamper through town to find food for his family. He knows he's hidden a big acorn somewhere, and he's off to find it. His wife and children are waiting for him in their small blue house perched high on a tree limb.

As we journey with Earl, we see the beauty of our nation's capital, lit up with the golden colors of fall. The illustrations are bright-hued and yet soft and muted at the same time. I enjoyed using the pictures to point out famous monuments and scenic spots to my children. We dream of visiting there someday.

What I especially loved about the book was the story behind it. It was originally sketched out in the early 1960s by Don Freeman, author of the classic Corduroy books. Three decades after Don Freeman's death in 1978, his son Roy discovered his father's handwritten text and sketches, and found the vision to finish the book, along with the help of gifted artist, Jody Wheeler. Wow. I loved sharing this fascinating background with my kids. It made me wonder how many of us have potential treasures stored away in our basements and attics, left from previous generations.

I think this would make a wonderful read-aloud book for teachers and librarians, especially as we celebrate the colors of fall and teach children about the change of seasons. From a child's view, acorns are fun to pick up and collect in coat pockets, but from a squirrel's view, acorns are food.

This is a quiet book. I'm a person who likes to read quiet books to my children. I'm very thankful we discovered it!

Great story with amazing illustrations 4. Oktober 2010
Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
I order this book for my son who loves "Corduroy" and "A Pocket for Corduroy" by Mr. Freeman. It is a wonderful story, very sweet and much in keeping with the "Corduroy" series. The illustrations are lovely, and the idea of it being a collaboration of family is very touching. I definitely recommend to families and children who love animals.

A Beautiful Collaboration 1. Dezember 2010
Von G. VanAkin - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
"One More Acorn" is a very special addition to the children's literature collection. The artwork, which makes me nostalgic for my childhood favorite "Corduroy", combined with an endearing story of a small squirrel in our country's big capital, made for a delightful read that I am sure to revisit.

One More Acorn...just kind of blah 29. November 2010
Von Alanna - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
I have read so many children's books to my boys in the last 10 years, and I was very excited to find this story that was written by Don Freeman and his son. Don Freeman wrote the Corduroy series that I read, and loved, myself as a child! I was very disappointed by this book, it did not hold my children's interest and I actually ended up giving it away. Nice idea, that Mr.Freeman's son finished this book after his father's passing, but it was just not a winner in this household, and we are true book lovers.
