About the Author

Sydell Rosenberg (1929-1996) was a charter member of the Haiku Society of America in 1968 and served as HSA’s Secretary in 1975. Her short poems – notably haiku and senryu – as well as other poetry, were published in various magazines and anthologies. Syd received her M.A. in English as a Second Language from Hunter College in 1972. It was Syd’s dream to publish a book of haiku for children. She lived, wrote, and taught in New York City.

Sawsan Chalabi is a Lebanese-American illustrator and designer. She earned her MFA in Illustration from Savannah College of Art and Design. When she is not at her computer making digital illustrations, she can be found in her studio getting messy with inks and paint. Her work has been published with several magazines and publishing houses such as Cricket Magazine, Bust Magazine, Wine & Spirits Magazine, Applied Arts Magazine, Penguin, and Lee & Low Books, among others. She currently resides in Washington, D.C.

This book is literally a work of heart. Amy Losak made it her mission to help her late mother; Sydell Rosenburg’s words take flight into the world. What is haiku? Amy says it best, “Haiku poems make small moments big.” Rosenberg’s A-Z Haiku take everyday scenes that nature paints and adds the color and the rhythm that make them dance upon our memory in a special way. They linger there and beg for the attention they rightfully deserve. So get comfortable, and share these small nuggets of nature’s beauty with the children in your life. Favorite Line- “HOLDING UMBRELLAS CHILDREN, LIKE ROWS OF MUSHROOMS, GLISTEN IN THE RAIN” Chalabi’s illustrations are eye-catching, detailed and active. I love the way the Haiku intertwines throughout the art and becomes incorporated with it. Chalabi also uses color, size and thickness in the font to put the focus on just the right words.
