Author Biography: As a teenager, Kristin's pen and paintbrush were passionate about nature. As a result, she had three best-selling books published while she was still a teen! Whether she knew it or not at the time, keeping a journal is an extremely effective educational technique. Now, as an environmental educator in her own right, Kristin Joy Pratt-Serafini is modeling how to keep a fun-filled nature journal and encouraging young people to discover a variety of habitats. Her first "model" nature journal was Salamander Rain: A Lake and Pond Journal. With this book Kristin explores a dryer, hotter habitat.
At 14, Kristin wrote and illustrated "A Walk in the Rainforest". At age 16 she followed with the popular "A Swim through the Sea". At 18 she did "A Fly in the Sky". In college, Kristin studied art. Now married with the last name of Pratt-Serafini, Kristin is a self-assured writer and artist, very environmentally aware, whose work is still young and fun.
When her family moves to the Sonoran Desert in Arizona, Megan keeps a nature journal in which she describes the desert, the changes that occur throughout the seasons, and how these affect the plant and animal inhabitants.
