Amy Schwartz has written and illustrated a number of classic and award-winning picture books. Amy was born and raised in California and now lives with her family in Brooklyn, New York. Her new book 100 Things That Make Me Happy is an uplifting tribute to 100 everyday things worth celebrating. The list, in rhyming couplets, draws directly from a preschooler’s world—from slippery floors to dinosaurs, from goldfish to a birthday wish. While the contents provide readers with a frame of reference for the quantity of “100”—a celebratory milestone in preschools and early elementary grades—the oversized pages envelop young children in the wonderful things surrounding them.
Amy will visit Maple Street School in December to talk to students! She'll talk about her new book and her life as a writer.
You can order copies of Amy’s books through Greenlight Bookstore! Amy will sign your books after his presentation and students can pick them up at the end of the day. Click on the book below to order.
