About the Author:

Kathleen Weidner Zoehfeld is the award-winning author of more than seventy books for children.  She has written several books in the Let’s Read And Find Out Science series, including:  WHAT LIVES IN A SHELL?, an NSTA/CBC “Outstanding Science Trade Book” and winner of the American Association for the Advancement of Science’s “Best Children’s Book” award; WHAT IS THE WORLD MADE OF?, a Children’s Book of the Month Club Main Selection; WHAT’S ALIVE?, also named an AAAS “Best Children’s Book”;  HOW MOUNTAINS ARE MADE, an NSTA/CBC “Outstanding Science Trade Book,” DINOSAUR TRACKS, "a great choice for even the most discriminating dinophiles" (School Library Journal); and DINOSAURS BIG AND SMALL, winner of the Oppenheim Toy Portfolio “Best Book Award”

Kathleen was a children’s book editor for over ten years before becoming a full-time writer.  When she is not reading, researching, writing, or editing she loves to spend her free time exploring, doing fieldwork, and preparing and curating fossils for her local natural history museums.  She lives in Berkeley, CA.

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 2?A simple and direct concept book that enables children to differentiate between living and inanimate things. Reader involvement is assured by a question-and-answer introduction that asks youngsters to consider how they are like a cat, a flower, or a bird. She urges children to draw pictures of everything they see on a walk and then to sort them into living and nonliving groups. Death is presented as part of life. Wescott's characteristically cheerful and lively illustrations depict a girl involved in a variety of activities, with interested cats and dog looking on. Their activity contrasts with the girl's doll, which is also present but can't move or express itself. A solid addition for classrooms and recreational reading.?Louise L. Sherman, Anna C. Scott School, Leonia, NJ
