This week, Kidz Book Buzz bloggers have been reviewing and discussing this beautiful children's picture book. Today, I'm going to wrap this up with a little more information on our author, Nancy Bo Flood.
Throughout her life Bo Flood has enjoyed reading, writing, and the sharing of stories. Her work has focused primarily on children and young adults, as counselor, teacher, or parent. She has conducted workshops of child abuse, learning disabilities, play therapy, as well as creative writing.Awards:
Through either work or research, Bo has lived in Malawi, Africa, Hawaii, Japan, the western Pacific, and, most recently, the Navajo Nation Reservation. Legends and folklore are of particular interest to Bo, for they hold the magic and mystery of other people’s – or generation’s – beliefs. When we read, we learn – about ourselves and about someone, somewhere – or sometime – else.
