Children’s book makes note of famous Arkansans

By The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette

Bill Clinton is one famous Arkansan, yes, and Sam Walton, Johnny Cash, Daisy Bates … and who else?

Pop quiz, boys and girls: Name 17 other famous Arkansans, writes Ron Wolfe in Family about Steven Tesk’s new children’s book, Natural State Notables: 21 Famous People From Arkansas (53 pages, $9.95), new from Butler Center Books in Little Rock.

Among 14 men and seven women, Teske also names and writes about novelist John Grisham, singer Jimmy Driftwood and former U.S. Sen. Blanche Lincoln, each a two-page biography.

He wrote the book generally with fourth-grade readers in mind, Teske says, and with hopes that “it will be useful to teachers and other educators.”
