Anne Miranda is an American author and illustrator living in Madrid, Spain. She has written many educational and trade books for children including: Baby Talk: An American Bookseller's Pick of the Lists (1987);Night Songs: Bank Street College Children's Book of the Year, Society of Illustrators Show 1993; To Market, To Market: Abby Honor Book, ALA Notable Children's Book, Golden Kite Honor Book for Illustrations, Flicker Tale Nominee (ND) 1997; and Beep Beep: Parents' Choice Gold Award 1999. Anne also collaborated with Caldecott Award-winning illustrator Ed Emberley on Glad Monster, Sad Monster, which has been translated into Spanish and French.From School Library Journal:
PreSchool-Striking collage art and rhyming couplets are used to introduce the habitats of 17 animals and insects. Many of the illustrations are lush, colorful double-page spreads that incorporate a wide array of textures and patterns. Young children will grasp the concept through this presentation, but the author's Night Songs (Bradbury, 1993) is more effective. Its lullaby construct gives it a stronger sense of unity, and its richness of language is more matched to the vitality of the art. However, the simplicity of the text will make Miranda's new book accessible to even younger groups, and will be an adequate addition to story times on the theme of "home sweet home." A soothing selection to accompany Lyn Littlefield Hoopes's My Own Home (HarperCollins, 1991; o.p.).
