It’s hard to be a lover of books and not know who Jane Yolen is. She is both legendary and prolific, and has published so many books that you can read one of her books every day of the year. Whether you know Owl Moon, How Do Dinosaurs Say Goodnight, The Devil’s Arithmetic or one of her many others, odds are you’ve read something that Jane has written.
Her daughter Heidi Stemple is a powerhouse in her own right. In the past 12 years, she has published 25 books of her own, as well as short stories and poems.
Jane and Heidi have combined to publish books together as well, including the recently released Fly With Me, a non-fiction book about birds and flying creatures that combines enchanting stories, lyrical poems and stunning photography with fascinating science.
Heidi has also recently published Counting Birds, a real-life story about bird counting and watching that teaches children what they can do to protect endangered bird species.
We’ll have both of these books and more on hand. Please be sure to join us for Saturday Morning Story Time with Heidi and Jane!
