Rosemary Wells began her career in children's books working as a designer at a publishing house, where she published her first book - an illustrated edition of Gilbert & Sullivan's I Have a Song to Sing-O. The success of her second book, Noisy Nora, helped earn her the reputation as one of today's bestselling and beloved picture book authors. And after creating the illustrations for My Very First Mother Goose, readers also discovered her considerable talents as an illustrator. "When I was two years old I began to draw," she says, "and my parents saw right away the career that lay ahead of me and encouraged me every day of my life." As a child who was constantly surrounded by books, Wells has always recognized the importance of reading and literacy campaigns, and she has long been a passionate and dedicated advocate for literacy and education. Her 150 books for children have received numerous awards and honors, including more than 20 ALA Notable Children's Book citations and a Boston Globe/Horn Book Award. She lives in Greenwich, Connecticut.

PreS?A celebration of the pleasures of reading that will have more appeal to adults than to preschoolers. Using a multicolored cast of bunnies, Wells shows that reading can be done anywhere?on a plane or a boat, or even in a bathtub. "Read to your bunny often,/It's twenty minutes of fun./It's twenty minutes of moonlight,/And twenty minutes of sun." A final note again stresses the value of reading to children. While this message-laden story could have been overwhelming, Wells manages to steer clear of didacticism through her heartwarming illustrations. Each framed scene is a loving tribute both precise and precious and wholly satisfying in artistic presentation and integrity. The book's small size and large print make this a perfect gift for new parents or for anyone who reads to children.?Martha Topol, Traverse Area District Library, Traverse City, MI
