Loreen Leedy writes and illustrates picture books in a studio in Winter Park, Florida. The Bunny Play and The Furry News: How to Make a Newspaper--both companion volumes to The Great Trash Bash--have been described well by reviewersFrom School Library Journal:
Grade 1-3?Flat, simply drawn animal characters, done in muted pastel shades, illustrate this straightforward, but not very exciting, introduction to genealogy. Sandy (a kitten) is the first to tell Ms. Fox and the class about the family tree she has made for their assignment, giving a brief identifying statement about her parents and siblings; aunts, uncles, and cousins; grandparents, great-aunts and uncles; and great-grandparents. Among the other youngsters in the class, one is adopted, and some have stepparents, stepsiblings, and half brothers and sisters. In response to a question, the teacher explains first and second cousins and closes the lesson with a list of the family words from the day's discussion. Family members are represented by cut-out leaves geometrically arranged on a tree outline?a method that is easy enough for youngsters to follow as they trace their own roots. A useful addition.?Virginia Opocensky, formerly at Lincoln City Libraries, NE
