Dori Chaconas was born in Milwaukee, Wisconsin in 1938. The second child in a family of seven, Dori fell into the role of storyteller, nursery rhyme singer, and general entertainer for her siblings. She claims she learned about story pacing early. If the story action lagged, her fidgety audience would either scatter or start a poking war.
She has been married to Nick, her high school sweetheart, for 44 years. Everyone says the romance will last. They raised four daughters, and are now enjoying three grandsons—especially Grandpa, having been outnumbered by women all those years.
When their daughters were young, Dori wrote for them. She published three picture books and more than fifty stories in children's magazines. In the 70's, her interest turned to yarn embroidery design and she sold designs to major needlework companies and national magazines.
In 1997, Dori started writing stories again, partly to keep her grandsons from fidgeting or starting poking wars. Her stories reflect the warmth of family life. Dori gives credit to her parents for giving her a strong sense of family, and to her children and grandchildren for keeping it alive.From School Library Journal:
PreS–"Momma, will you milk the cow?/Yes or no or maybe?/We would like some sweet milk now./Milk for me and baby."As a young boy asks questions, he, his baby sister, and their mother spend a day exploring their farm. They feed the hen, ride a dappled horse, take a bath, and share kisses with a puppy. The mother's answers–either yes, no, or maybe–are presented in reassuring refrains that echo her son's queries. Chaconas's language evokes warmth and comfort, resulting in a story that begs to be read to children while they are snuggled in a loved one's lap. Featuring warm colors and realistic-looking characters, the large, expressive illustrations enhance the cozy mood of the text. Full-page paintings of the family are paired with white silhouettes of the featured farm animals set against textured backgrounds. As the day ends, the baby is sleeping in a crib and the mother is gently tucking the boy into bed. The room is lit from behind by the golden glow of a lamp on a nightstand. This affectionate, satisfying book will be asked for again and again.–Rebecca Sheridan, Easttown Library & Information Center, Berwyn, PA
