Meet the Author

Laura Vaccaro Seeger is a New York Times bestselling author and illustrator and the winner of the Caldecott Honor, the New York Times Best Illustrated Book Award, the Boston GlobeHorn Book Award for Best Picture Book, and a 2time winner of the Theodor Seuss Geisel Honor. She is also the recipient of the 2011 Empire State Award for "Body of Work and Contribution to Children's Literature".
Laura grew up on Long Island, New York, with her parents, Vera and Phil, brothers, Billy and Tommy, sister, Linda, and both grandmothers. She began drawing at two years old and never stopped.
She earned her BFA degree at the School of Fine Art and Design at the State University of New York at Purchase (SUNY Purchase). She then moved to Manhattan and began a career as an animator, artist, designer and editor in the network television business. She created show openings and special segments for NBC and ABC for many years and won an Emmy Award for an NBC Special opening animation.
Laura has been an artist and a writer for as long as she can remember and has always wanted to make picture books for children. In the fifth grade, she'd written an essay that stated with absolute certainty that she was born to make picture books. By that time, she had written and illustrated her own little library. Over the years, she continued to make books of all shapes and sizes and several years ago, she decided it was time to try to get some of her books published. She was fortunate to have met her editor, Neal Porter, almost immediately.
Laura now lives in Rockville Centre, Long Island, with her husband, Chris Arley Seeger, their two sons, Drew Alexander Seeger and Dylan Matthew Seeger, and their dog, Copper, the star of Laura's "Dog and Bear" series. She loves painting, writing, surfing, boating, tennis, running, playing the piano, and spending time with her family. She takes long walks at the beach each day and paints in her studio each night.

    A Must See And Read For Children And Adults Alike

    Laura Vaccaro Seeger captures the imagination of the reader from the very beginning. Her stunning illustrations, plus the singing of Pete Seeger on the included CD, made this book come alive for me and my children. I could totally relate to the theme of this book and it brought back many memories of songs my parents used to sing to me while growing up. The paintings are beautifully original and richly colorful. My children have made thisd book a family favorite. It's a must have for any collection.

    Your Children Will Get this Book for Their Own Kids Someday

    This is a wonderful book! The CD only adds to the pleasure it gives...not just to kids who are lucky enough to have it but to parents who will be asked to read it night after night. The book design is ingenious; the illustrations are lush and fanciful. I would buy the CD for its own sake, just to hear Mike, Peggy and Pete Seeger sing together. Having found this set now has made my Christmas shopping a lot easier!!
