Working hard, gathering up the many words I have written for children over the years.

Giving Rhyme to Reason. [Sketch by Andrea Surwillo]


Word-juggler, universe-contemplator, and reason-rouser!

Having had the privilege of working with children from Europe to the Indian Ocean to the Sahel, I am continually amazed by both the fact and fiction that color their world. While the sight and sounds of African djembes still rhythmically defy lunar eclipses, satellite imagery is returned to the Earth that scientifically explains them…

I am ever juggling words into mid-air, trying to capture both the mythos and certainty, and even a bit of the magic, that leaves its mark on childhood.
