Author Biography:

Anne Rockwell as everyone concerned with children knows, is the author and artist of more than one hundred books for young readers and listeners. Among her most popular books are The Three Bears and Fifteen Other Stories; The Robber Baby: Stories from the Greek Myths; The Acorn Tree and Other Folktales; The One-Eyed Giant and Other Monsters from the Greek Myths; Once Upon a Time This Morning (illustrated by Sucie Stevenson); and Long Ago Yesterday. Ms. Rockwell lives in Connecticut on the Shore of Long Island Sound.

In Her Own Words...

"I've been told that the first words I spoke were the colors of things, and I can't remember when I didn't make pictures.

"When I discovered the rich and exciting worlds to be found in books, I was fascinated by the art and civilization of Ancient Egypt. It wasn't only the detailed storytelling paintings by Egyptian artists that caused me to feel such a strong identity with that long-ago civilization. I also lived in a place called Memphis. My home, however, was not the ancient city on the banks of the fertile Nile River. I was born in that Egyptian city's namesake in Tennessee—on the wide and muddyMississippi River.

"When I was five or six years old, I made a painting of a quite imaginary Queen Cleopatra floating down the Nile on a quite imaginary and super-colorful barge. When I won first prize in a children's art contest for this painting, I decided I had become, from that day on, a professional artist.

"Much as I loved drawing and painting, I also loved to read. My home was full of books on many subjects, and I probably read as many originally intended for adults as written for children. Rainy days were my favorites, for then I didn't have to go outside to play. Instead, I could stay indoors reading and making the kind of pictures missing from many books I read. I liked to read about things that were real and things that weren't. I was equally fascinated by the things people had actually achieved and those they had only dreamed of and imagined. This is still true.

"Books meant so much to me that I hoped, one day, to write a book other children would enjoy reading. And my book would be filled with the kind of pictures I craved. But I appreciated too much the difficulties inherent in finding just the right words for whatever I wanted to say. So writing remained a secret aspiration, for I was convinced I wasn't good at it. In fact, writing down my thoughts was the hardest thing I'd ever tried to do.

"Since then I've learned that the way to write is by writing. If my first try isn't as good as I'd hoped it would be (and it rarely is), then I rewrite. And when I read that, I usually rewrite some more. It is hard work, but work I love.

"By now I've written stories and painted pictures for many books for children. I've been very lucky, for like the heroines of so many of the fairy tales I loved, all that I've wished for has come true.

"Except for one thing. I still haven't been to Egypt."

Ten children share things that are special to them on show-and-tell day at school.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Trina Heidt
Show and Tell is probably every young child's favorite part of the school week. Who can blame them? It's their opportunity to be proud of and share a part of their of their lives with fellow classmates. By incorporating diverse and lovable children and objects, mother and daughter, Anne and Lizzy, have created a wonderfully inviting, realistic atmosphere in the fictional Mrs. Madoff's classroom. This book itself would be a great "show and tell."
School Library Journal
PreS-KIn this fairly uninvolving picture book, 10 preschoolers share various items on show-and-tell day, including a feather, a plastic dinosaur, a robot, and a scary mask. The writing is dull, basically along the order of "Pablo brought in a pair of maracas and showed us how to make music with them." One gets the sense that the author is building up to some sort of surprise or big ending, but the story stops with a thud when the young narrator dons his mask and thinks none of his classmates know it's him. That's it. The illustrations are flat, featuring multicultural kids who have remarkably similar expressions. This could have been so much more, and considering the author and illustrator, it's surprising it isn't.Christine A. Moesch, Buffalo & Erie County Public Library, NY
Bobbie Combs
One of the nicest things about this picture book depicting a familiar part of every school year is the way the author and illustrator turn a very simple story into a chance to share some different types of cultures and families with the reader, all the while easing those back-to-school anxieties.
