About the Author:

Patricia Lauber is the author of more than sixty-five books for young readers. Many of them are in the field of science, and their range reflects the diversity of her own interests-bats, dolphins, dogs, volcanoes, earthquakes, the ice ages, the Everglades, the planets, earthworms. Two of her books, SEEDS: POP STICK GLIDE and JOURNEY TO THE PLANETS, were nonfiction nominees for The American Book Awards. She was the 1983 winner of The Washington Post/Children's Book Guild Award for her overall contribution to children's nonfiction literature.

As well as writing books, Ms. Lauber has been editor of Junior Scholastic, editor-in-chief of Science World, and chief editor, science and mathematics, of The New Book of Knowledge

A graduate of Wellesley College, she is married and lives in Connecticut. When not writing, she enjoys hiking, sailing, traveling, cooking, reading, and listening to music.



Holly Keller is the creator of many popular books for children, including the Horace books, Farfallina & Marcel, and Help! In applauding her work, School Library Journal noted that she is "an author/artist who truly understands children." Holly Keller lives in New Haven, Connecticut.

From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 3?In this addition to the popular series, life on our planet is compared with a manned shuttle mission that must take special care to insure the health and safety of its crew?"Earth is our home in space. We are all aboard the same spaceship." Once that concept is established, youngsters learn interesting facts about the supplies needed to survive?food, air with oxygen, and water. Lauber is adept at writing for this audience, using simple vocabulary and straightforward sentences. She covers thoroughly the methods by which Earth's vital elements are replenished. Keller's bright and colorful drawings further explain complicated concepts such as the water cycle. A welcome title for young readers who are just beginning to understand the environment.?Blair Christolon, Prince William Library, Manassas, VA
