About the Author

Tara Michelle Fischer is passionate about writing and illustrating books for children; and being an elementary teacher for many years has given her insight as to the kinds of literature young children enjoy. Tara is convinced that if children like a book's illustrations, they are more likely to enjoy reading it. "Yes, children love illustrations, but not the same kinds that adults often appreciate," she advises. "To create illustrations and subjects for kids, you must think like a kid." Tara is always looking for ideas to use in her writing. While walking along the beach in Florida, she saw a gopher tortoise on an empty lot. What would a land turtle think if he met a sea turtle? Being able to try out her work on her own class has also given her some great ideas and suggestions from the "real experts" in children's literature. "Children are all about fun --- if it isn't fun, they will not engage in the book or activity," she suggests. "Teachers often make the best writers and illustrators for children's books because of their unique insight. We know what works."
