I spent most of my childhood leisure looking out the window, watching a very busy street or staring into a sky full of kites. I realize the dreamer in me stayed on ... and came back when I began looking at the world again through the eyes of my children. Today, I'm a children's author. And in this space you'll find out more about me and my work - books, multicultural children's book reviews, articles, interviews, and information on my early literacy programs. Thank you for stopping by.
