Nina Crews visited PS 321 on Wednesday, November 5, to talk to first grade classes. Crews’ work combines photographs and photo collage to create energetic stories about young children. Nina often draws from classical tales or delves into children’s imaginary adventures for subject matter, using friends and family members as live models to create her unique visual style. Her bestselling titles include The Neighborhood Mother Goose, One Hot Summer Day (a Sesame Street Parents ‘Kids Hit’ selection) and Below (an ALA Notable Selection, along with Mother Goose). Nina lives in Brooklyn with her husband and son.
