Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Donald Crews (born in Newark, New Jersey, in 1938) is a U.S. writer and illustrator of several well-known children's picture books. He won the Caldecott Honor twice. Common subjects of his include modern technology (especially travel vehicles), and childhood memories. His stories often include few humans. Donald Crews was born in Newark, New Jersey, in 1938. He had an older brother, Asa who became Beth Israel Hospital's first African-American intern, and two sisters. His mother worked as a seamstress, and his father worked at the railroad, and several other odd jobs. For the summers he would travel down to rural Florida to stay with his grandmother, who he called "Bigmama." The difference between the big city and the farm caused him to create two, massively different types of art later on in his life. From a young age, his talent for drawing was encouraged by his family and his teachers. When he got into high school, one of his teachers became a mentor to him, and personally made sure that he got into art school.
