Author Biography: Virginia Kroll does not do her writing in a secluded cabin or an ivory tower, but in her own home that bustles with the activities of her six children and other members of the householdincluding many pets. She is also a prolific writer, at least in the very early hours of the morning when everyone else is asleep. The strength of her compassion and perception come through in her four books published by Dawn: Motherlove, With Love to Earth's Endangered Peoples, Cat! and When God Made the Tree.
Author Biography: Lucia Washburn illustrated Motherlove while her two-year-old daughter, Megan, played with crayons at her own little table nearby, or looked at animal pictures in a pile of reference books. Lucia loves mothering and illustrating. She is a graduate of the Rhode Island School of Design, and lives in Petaluma, California. This is the fourth book she has illustrated, the first for Dawn Publications.
