About the Author

Letitia B. Burton—or “B.B.,” as her young readers call her—believes that one of the most important things that a parent can do is read to their child for at least 30 minutes a day. It was a practice that she started with her three children after receiving this wonderful advice from the head of her daughter’s elementary school. It is through sharing these stories that parents and children can together travel to new and interesting worlds and develop shared compassion for the characters. Letitia continued to read to each of her children daily until they fired her, one by one, at some point when they were in middle school.

She lives in Southport, Connecticut, with her husband, three children, their two bunnies, two chickens, parrot, and beloved yellow lab Shesky, whom she now reads to. She loves to kayak out to visit the ospreys who inspired her book Soar.

She is committed to donating a percentage of all profits from the sales of her books to organizations working to help children or protect the environment.
