Everyone Loves Buttons is happy to be a part of the increasing success of children’s book author, Ame Dyckman. Just as everyone loves buttons, everyone also loves a good story, and who better to tell one than the upbeat, outgoing and colorful character that is Ame.
From her vibrant hair color to her big-eared cat, Dyckman is quite the follow on Twitter as she spreads the word about her books and gives you a glimpse inside the adventure that is her life.
Dyckman authored the New York Times Bestseller “Wolfie the Bunny.” Along with illustrator Zachariah OHora, Ame gives us a fun and fresh perspective on some very real life scenarios including adoption, stereotypes and sibling rivalry. This book is perfect for children and parents alike, and it displays a great message…that despite our differences, we are all one in the same.
“Wolfie the Bunny” racked up plenty of accolades including:
- Parents Magazine Best Fictional Picture Book 2015
- The Huffington Post Best Picture Books 2015
- ASLC Notable Book for Children
- School Library Journal Best of the Year
- NYPL 100 Titles for Reading and Sharing
- Wilde Award Best Picture Books Ages 4-8
- A Bank Street College Best Children’s Book of 2016
Dyckman and OHora followed up with “Horrible BEAR!” This book is a terrific display of friendship, something that will often test your patience, but through understanding and forgiveness, can be the most rewarding battle of your life.
The New York Times had some wonderful things to say about Dyckman and OHora’s follow up to “Wolfie the Bunny”:
“As fun as a theme park ride… Dyckman and OHora specialize in full-spectrum emotion and offbeat charm.”
Ame’s latest book entitled “You DON’T Want a UNICORN!” is set to release on Valentine’s Day 2017. This time, she teamed up with the hilarious Liz Climo to inform all the younglings to be careful what you wish for. Unicorns may look pretty and majestic, but they are a whole lot to handle as a pet in this sure-to-be new hit.
We look forward to continuing our professional relationship with Ame as she continues to produce tremendous stories for the youth of America. Everyone Loves Buttons is proud to support such a wonderful cause… child literacy and imagination!
