Charlotte Guillain worked as a bookseller, an English teacher and an editor before becoming an author. She has written more than 100 books, both fiction and non-fiction. She always wanted to be a writer and her top tip is to read as much as you can.From School Library Journal:
Kindergarten-Grade 3–These introductory titles explain aspects of the universe in short, direct sentences and include full-color photographs. They explain that the sun is a huge ball of gas whose light and heat are needed to sustain life on Earth, that water makes Earth appear blue, and other simple facts. A basic question that can be easily answered by attentive readers appears at the end of each book. There are also activity recommendations for parents and teachers as well as glossaries that will expand youngstersâÇÖ vocabularies, adding to the sense of achievement. These are great selections for individual reading, classroom sharing, science projects, and Earth Day celebrations.–Narda McCarthy, Para Los Niños Consultant, Weston, FL
