 苏珊·斯托克戴尔的动物图书获得殊荣



Ava Coggin is being homeschooled. She loves when her mother reads to her - especially Bring on the Birds.It's an award winning picutre book about animals, written and illustrated by Susan Stockdale.

"What I love doing is showcasing animals in all their glory and all their diversity to kids and saying take a look at this, this is pretty incredible," said Susan Stockdale.

At her studio near Washington DC, Stockdale says she feels like an environmentalist , encouraging children to focus on the beauty of nature. She spends a lot of time on her books' drawings and its rhymes.

"Just the sound of the words: round fish, clown fish, fish that like to hide. Stripe fish, spite fish, fish that lip and glide. So that makes it fun," she said.

Stockdale says she's influenced by the lush vegetation and animal life in Florida, where she grew up. But it was one of her children who gave her the idea for her first book.

"This is my first book, Some Sleep Standing Up.And this was inspired by a flamingo, which is in the book, that was standing on one leg when my children and I went to the zoo," she said.

Stockdale's work has earned a place on bookshelves at libraries and schools.

Kathy Isaacs chaired the American Library Association committee that honored Bring On The Birds last year.

"The text is rhyme but it is natural rhyme. It flows nicely and is rhythmic," said Isaacs. "It's notable because of its pictures, these acrylic paintings that she did which are quite accurate and specific but also shows the birds in their context."

Now, Stockdale's books also come as coloring books and puzzles. Ava's mother, Megan Coggin, has read most of them.

"Love the books," said Coggin. "I loved that the illustrations are accurate but very kid friendly."

Stockdale's next picture book will be called Stripes Of All Types. It's about animals around the world and their unique stripes.

"This is going to be the painting for scouting a reef," she said. "When I did the research for this, I had to make sure that all of these fishes would co-habit with one another."

With a careful approach to her work, Susan Stockdale continues to give children an exciting glimpse of the natural world that she clearly loves.


艾娃•科琴正准备在家自学。她喜欢母亲给她念书,尤其是念《Bring on the Birds》。这是一本由苏珊•斯托克戴尔负责编写及插图的关于动物的获奖图画书。
“我喜欢做的是为孩子们展现动物们所有的壮观及它们所有的多样性,让孩子们看一看这个,这是很让人难以置信的。”苏珊•斯托克戴尔说道。
在她华盛顿附近的工作室, 斯托克戴尔称,她觉得自己像个环保主义人士,鼓励孩子们专注于大自然的美。她在自己书中的绘画和韵律上花了大量的时间。
“只是这些单词的发音:圆形鱼、小丑鱼,鱼都喜欢躲起来。条纹鱼、怨恨鱼,有嘴唇及游来游去的鱼。这使它们非常有趣。”她说道。
斯托克戴尔称她受到在自己长大的佛罗里达州繁茂的植被和动物们的影响。但是她的一个孩子赋予自己的第一本书灵感。
“《站着睡觉的某些动物》是我的第一本书,而它的灵感来自书里的一只红鹳, 当我和孩子去动物园的时候发现它一条腿着地。”她说道。
斯托克戴尔的作品被摆放到图书馆放和学校的书架上。
凯西•艾萨克斯是美国图书馆协会委员会的主席,他对去年的《Bring On The Birds》充满敬意。
“文本有种韵律,但很自然。行文流畅自然而且节奏感很强。”艾萨克斯说道。“值得注意的是书的插图,她的这些亚克力画,准确而且特别的展现了鸟儿们。”
现在, 斯托克戴尔的书籍也有了上色和谜题的部分。艾娃的母亲, 麦根•科琴就读了它们中的大多数。
“我爱这些书。”科琴说道。“我喜欢这些准确的插图,而且对孩子们很有亲和力。”
斯托克戴尔的下一本图画书将被称为《Stripes Of All Types》。它是关于世界各地的动物们及其独特的条纹。
“这将是为了搜索一处礁石而绘画,”她说道。“当我进行研究的时候,我必须确保这些鱼会彼此共栖。”
秉承着严谨的工作方法, 苏珊•斯托克戴尔会一直带给孩子们一个令人兴奋的自然世界,当然那也是她自己所深爱着的。
