A native Midwesterner, JILL ESBAUM is a widely published author of books for young readers. She is a frequent school visitor and conference speaker. She teaches writing for children at the University of Iowa Summer Writing Festival and the Whispering Woods Picture Book Writing Retreat.
"Esbaum's text is funny, educational, and exciting enough to keep children turning those pages until the very end. This book is flexible and diverse enough to be used across multiple genres, including science, social skills courses, math, horticulture, ecology, oceanography, meteorology, or simply as a vibrant independent reading tool." -- New York Journal of Books "Readers will have fun looking through this book and will also enjoy the many subject areas covered... I found it hard to put the book down as each page contained another interesting question. The design is very appealing with colorful pictures that follow the text." -- School Library Connection .
