About the Author

Shana Corey

When I was little, I loved stories about olden-day girls--my favorites were Betsy-Tacy, All-of-a-Kind Family, Little House On the Prairie. Imagine my delight when I went to college and discovered that I could take ENTIRE classes on olden-day girls! I learned to call it women's history, but really--it was the exact same topic I'd been interested in since I was five. Now, I have the great pleasure and honor of editing books for children myself. I also write picture books, most of them true stories about brave women and girls in history. When I'm not writing or editing, I'm usually reading with my two little boys.For additional resources, including lesson plans, book lists, and information on school visits, check out www.shanacorey.com.
