About the Author

Betty Miles is a graduate of Antioch College.  She is a former Associate Editor of the Bank Street Readers, and has taught both kindergarten and graduate students, led workshops with parents, teachers, and librarians, and talked about books and reading with children and their parents around the country.  Betty hated her first day of elementary school because she was the only kid who knew how to read!  Since then, Betty has turned her love of reading into a how-to book for beginning readers called "Hey! I'm Reading" .  She would like to be many things, if she weren't an author:  a musician, architect, city planner and even a stand-up comedian!  Betty's books are a mix of things that have really happened to her and things she's completely made up.  But after she's worked on a book for a long time, a funny thing happens:  everything in it becomes real to her, and even her invented characters start to seem like real friends!
