Biografia breu
Frieda Wishinsky's parents emigrated to Canada from Europe after the end of World War II. She began writing as a child. She majored in international relations in university, and then enrolled in an M.S. program in special education. She became a special education teacher and has worked for more than 25 years in three countries. While on a two-month sabbatical with her husband in Eugene, Oregon, she began writing books for children and young adults. She found success with her first work, the picture book Oonga Boonga (1990), and has been a prolific author of more than 60 books since then, winning numerous awards



An engaging, rather than boring, biography.

This is set up as a board book and it has a line per page of two things, usually a flower and an animal helping each other. Then that page asks a question. It waits until the very end to give you the answers. It tells you about ladybugs and bats and hummingbirds, and all the animals that were in the book. I thought it was a little odd at first, but it all comes together quite well. And makes for a book that would be enjoyable by kids with short attention span and by kids who want to go and learn further.… (més)
