Happy Birthday Leo Lionni

Born May 5, 1910 in Amsterdam


Leo Lionni was born into a family that appreciated art, and from a very young age, he knew he wanted to be an artist.  He loved nature and started keeping small creatures-minnows, fish and more-in his attic room in Amsterdam.  He also created terrariums, and many of these natural details found their way into his later work.  Like so many successful children's authors, Leo Lionni was able to remember and tap into things that were important to him when he was a child.
