Harriet Ziefert is the grandmother of four and lives in Lincoln, Massachusetts, and Maplewood, New Jersey.
Lauren Browne always knew she wanted to illustrate children's books, and her parents were supportive of her aspirations. They even created an entire wall in Lauren's bedroom for her to draw on! She lives and works in Bucks County, Pennsylvania.
PreSchool-Grade 1–Lulu wants to make an extra-special present for her grandmother, so she decides to create the most beautiful hat she can imagine. Using an old straw hat from her mother's closet, she loads it with bits of things that Grandma loves: flowers, leaves, feathers, necklaces, and ribbon, and adds a bird's nest on top. In a side story revealed only in the art, Lulu's naughty cat tears off the bird's nest and demolishes it while the child prepares for her grandmother's arrival. Of course, Grandma thinks that Lulu's creation is absolutely gorgeous. The pen-and-ink and watercolor illustrations are light and cheery, adding humor and sweetness to the text. This delightful story is perfect for reading on Grandma's lap. Other laps will work as well.–Mary Hazelton, Elementary Schools in Warren & Waldoboro, ME
