  1. I learned that Alma Flor Ada grew up in Cuba. Her family lived in a “wonderful big old house.” I also learned that Alma Flor Ada says that she writes to share some of the feelings she had as a child: “the joy, the excitement, the surprise.” She says that seeing her books in the hands of a child is one of her greatest joys.

  2. I learned that Melodye Benson Rosales spreads her talent far and wide in the world of children’s books. She has created illustrations for the “Addy” books in the popular American Girls series, and she has illustrated a collection of poems. She has also written books of her own, including a new series featuring the character Minnie Merriweather.
