- Description: I write in many genres, from board books to YA. I am thrilled to announce TWO more picture books coming SOON:
DEAR EARTH...From Your Friends in Room 5 (Illus. by Luisa Uribe / Harper Collins) Dec. 1, 2020. #ClimateAction
PETER EASTER FROG (Illus. by G. Brian Karas /Caitlyn Dlouhy books/ Atheneum/S&S) January 2021
SNOWGLOBE WISHES (Illus. by Claire Shorrock / Sleeping Bear Press) 2019 got a shiny KIRKUS starred review: https://www.kirkusreviews.com/book-re... “The feelings of community and togetherness are palpable.” ❄️GRANDMA'S FAVORITE; and GRANDPA'S FAVORITE (Kane Miller/ illus. by Luciana Navarro Powell), now available from Kane Miller via the Usborne Books and More web site will be released to Indies and B&N this year--and there are Spanish editions as well! K IS FOR KINDERGARTEN (Sleeping Bear Press; illus. by Joseph Cowman) is perfect for current kinders and teachers AND those who need something to DO while waiting for Kindergarten to start. BABIES COME FROM AIRPORTS (Kane Miller/ illus. by Luciana Navarro Powell--And spoiler alert: NO, they don't. See p. 2.) is a kid's-eye view of international adoption--from the paper work, researching heritage, and ALL the waiting, to that first hello. DECK THE WALLS (Sleeping Bear/ Illus. by Nick Ward) is about the kids' table at a holiday dinner --and a fun sing-along for school celebrations. My picture books with Atheneum/S&S, GOLDIE LOCKS HAS CHICKEN POX, and LITTLE BO PEEP CAN’T GET TO SLEEP have taken me to school visits as far south as Brazil and as far north as Tok, Alaska.I'm a Language Arts/ theater teacher with decades of classroom experience and head the theater department of Sugarloaf Fine Arts Camp. As a member of the Area3WP, I lead writing workshops for teachers and students of all ages. If you're wondering why I look familiar, I'm the former RA for SCBWI CA North/Central, and have presented at SCBWI, reading associations, school library associations, and the PK1 Conference.If you’re still reading this (thanks!), you can find my full bio and Writer’s Rap at http://www.erindealey.com and onTwitter/Insta: @ErinDealey.
