Author Biography: For 30 years J. Patrick Lewis was a college professor, teaching economics. Now he plays with words and hangs out with kids at elementary schools. He is out to prove that "poetry is ear candy," and to inspire a simpatico connection with the natural wonders that surround us. "If there is a better way to spend a lifetime," he says, "I can't imagine what it would be." Mr. Lewis is also the author of the highly acclaimed Earth & You - A Closer View: Nature's Features.
