About the Author
Jennifer Dussling is lucky enough to have been surrounded by great children's books her whole life. As a teenager, she started working at a children's-only independent bookstore in Pennsylvania, and after graduating from college, she made her way to New York City, where she took a job as an editorial assistant at a publishing company. Since then, she's written over fifty books for kids, both fiction and nonfiction, licensed and original, including Bugs, Bugs, Bugs; Pink Snow and Other Weird Weather; Giant Squid; Slinky Scaly Snakes; and One Little Flower Girl. Jen lives in Tampa, Florida, and when she's not writing or editing, you can find her in her garden, on a volleyball court, or curled up with a good book.

This is a simply written non-fiction book. Most non-fiction books are written for older kids, or for younger kids only as read-alouds. A *factual* book that early readers can read to themselves?Brilliant.Not every kid wants fairies and talking dinosaurs all the time. Sometimes, they really just want plain facts.I really like this book, have I said?I do have one minor problem with it, and that is that the text is really not laid out in the best way for this stage of reader. It can be a little distracting, jumping from section to section, and the text-boxes aren't any help - the information they contain should really be integrated into the main text instead.
