Where to Find My Books

There are many places to find or order my books — your LOCAL PUBLIC LIBRARY, your LOCAL SCHOOL LIBRARY, and your LOCAL BOOKSTORES, or on your LOCAL BOOKSTORE’S ONLINE SITE and at online booksellers or You can also contact my publishers, Candlewick Press, Little, Brown & Co., Scholastic, Inc., and Simon & Schuster. Each publisher can help you order books, a number of which are available in paperback.

Many of my books are in Spanish. Many are also in other languages. Each time I receive a copy of one of my books in another language, it’s a thrill. My books are in so many countries around the world-the latest being Croatia, Mongolia, South Korea, and Israel. For books in languages other than English, please contact each individual publisher, who will be happy to provide information on how to obtain these books.

A brochure with tips and suggestions on how to introduce and use IT’S NOT THE STORK!, IT’S PERFECTLY NORMAL and IT’S SO AMAZING! with children and teens can be obtained from Candlewick Press by downloading it here or by emailing Science educator Sally Crissman and I created this brochure for and at the request of parents, educator, librarians, health professionals, clergy and others who work with children and teens.

AND SWEET JASMINE, NICE JACKSON — GROWING UP STORIES Flyer, a frieze in which children paste pictures or draw pictures of when they were babies and ages one and two.
