Judy Sierra has been writing laugh-out-loud picture books for 25 years. Besides inducing giggles, Judy's books expand children's vocabularies, extol the virtues of kindness, perseverance, and friendship, and celebrate the joy of a life filled with books.
"I write stories and rhymes to entertain children ages four to eight," she explains. "Also, because picture books are shared across generations, I always add a bit of humor and wordplay for adults. I'm very pleased when an online reviewer says they enjoy reading my books to children again and again."
Illustrators such as Marc Brown, Melissa Sweet, J. Otto Seibold, Will Hillenbrand, and Stephen Gammell have expanded her work's humor exponentially, creating read-aloud classics like Wild About Books, Sleepy Little Alphabet, Counting Crocodiles, and The Secret Science Project That Almost Ate the School
