My wife, adult son and his wife, my baby grand-daughter, and I live on a bluff overlooking the Merced River. During spring runoff the river roars; and in the summer there are placid pools perfect for swimming. The town we live in is El Portal and right next to Yosemite National Park. There’s a small school here with only three teachers. The kids at the school help me a lot with my books and you can see pictures of some of them in my backyards buddies series which includes Rolypolyology, Ladybugology, and other titles about favorite backyard "bugs."

Marla Roth-Fisch, Award-Winning Children's Author/Illustrator, Speaker

During our four-year-old son’s parent/teacher conference, his Montessori teacher noticed some different behavior during school time, so she bluntly told us she thought our son had Sensory Integration Dysfunction (SPD, better known today as Sensory Processing Disorder). Thinking the absolute worst while holding back the tears and feeling a lump in my throat, my husband and I said, “What is that? And how do we get rid of it?” The message delivered from the teacher may not have been the most professional; however, it changed the course of our family’s life.

Elizabeth Raum, Children's Author, Educator, Speaker

I want kids to find history and historical characters as fascinating as I do. People in the past were not cardboard figures but real people who were shaped by the time in which they lived. By getting to know the past, we gain a better understanding of the present and can work to create a better future. When talking about animal or weather topics, I focus on the joy of uncovering new facts. Research, no matter the topic, is a treasure hunt!
