About the Author

Born and raised in Chicago, Illinois, Alva is happily transplanted in California. Although all her favorite foods are still in Chicago. She is married and has three grown children and two beagles,Jackie and Jill who keep her busy when she is not writing. She loved teaching and when she wondered what she was going to do when she grew up, Alva thought,"Why not write fun books for children?"

Alva Sachs earned her Bachelor of Science Degree at the University of Illinois, and holds a Master’s of Education Degree from Northern Illinois University.

After sixteen years of elementary school teaching, what was originally just a thought became reality, and in 2008, Alva published her first children’s picture book. Circus Fever. Her other books titled On Your Mark, Get Set, Go! and I'm 5 are all award-winning titles for Alva.

She is a Board Member of Reading Is Fundamental of Southern California that helps to support literacy for underserved children in the greater Los Angles, California area by building home libraries for children. As a member of many other organizations, Alva's commitment to children and reading continues to grow. Encouraging reading and writing for children at a young age helps them to explore their own ideas and imagination.

Creating stories for the sheer joy of reading was the catalyst for Alva to share her writing with children. Join Alva and read for fun where adventure is around every corner! Whether Alva is visiting schools, libraries, literacy festivals, or just story-time events, you can be sure it will be fun for everyone!
