welcome to my home!

I write picture books for babies and young children and the grown-ups who read to them. When I’m not writing stories, I’m sharing them with my young granddaughter! For many years I was an education researcher at the Harvard Graduate School of Education, studying how families are engaged in their children’s learning.
