Fortunately for the many, many children who have been delighted by her books, Nancy persisted, learning more about her craft while waiting to be published. Her books were successful, and they definitely found their young audiences. Eventually, the New York Times would call Nancy Tafuri “the Queen Mother of Warmly Soothing Animal Bedtime Stories.” Read more

Interview with Nancy Tafuri and Giveaway.

What books did you love as a child?

Every week my mother and I would go grocery shopping and a new picture book would make this event a winner...I am a product of the Classic Golden Book era: The Pokey Little Puppy, The Little Red Hen, The Animals of Farmer Jones and then there was: The Little Engine That Could by Watty Piper, I-Think-I-Can, I-Think-I-Can! Which has been my motto throughout my life! Read more of the interview here ...
