Raven Howell’s poems appear in many children’s magazines. This is her fourth poetry picture book. On the heels of her debut collection, Dozy Poems, Cozy Days, she was voted Poetry Soup’s “top hottest poet” in 2015, and she’s a three-time recipient of the Letter of Merit Magazine award for poetry from the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators. Raven is enthusiastic about children’s well being and literacy, and delights in presenting poetry workshops in elementary schools. She likes baking, warm butterscotch chip cookies, a good mystery book, walks on the beach, morning hikes, the first spring flower, plenty of sunshine, and every moment she spends with her family. She lives in the Hudson Valley.
