Published Books

As an author, I like to tell stories that include aspects of social, emotional and cultural development. It truly has been a joy to develop each story, working with editors and illustrators to turn my idea into something to be treasured by children and families. All of my books include a Note to the Reader with more information and resources for parents and teachers. In addition, you can find further resources like complementary lesson plans developed by teachers in the links provided. Thank you so much for checking them out and enjoy!
