Riassunto: From the first day of second grade, Sister Anne lights up Anna's classroom. But it's the early 60s and not everyone in Anna's small town is ready to accept Sister. How she deals with this and the profound impact she has on her students is at the heart of a touching, timeless tale about the virtue of tolerance and how a teacher can change a child's life. Marybeth Lorbiecki's universal story -- based on a childhood experience -- is both funny and poignant. Her spare, accessible text, alongside Wendy Popp's sun-drenched pastels, is a moving journey for those who remember the 60s and those who don't. Marybeth Lorbiecki also wrote two other books for Dial, Just One Flick of a Finger, a Chicago Tribune Best Book of the Year, and My Palace of Leaves in Sarajevo. K. Wendy Popp illustrated two previous picture books. Reviewers have said her work is "fabulous" (USA Today), with "an other-worldly quality" (Booklist). Marybeth Lorbiecki lives in Hudson, Wisconsin. K. Wendy Popp lives in Larchmont, New York.
About the Author:
The majority of Marybeth Lorbiecki’s books are award-winners. With more than twenty titles, Marybeth brings to her writing her experiences as a children’s book editor, mom, teacher, marketing copywriter, journalist, youth worker, international Rotarian ambassador, graduate student in literature, and post graduate student in philosophy. (Someday she’ll find a way to work in something about being a lens grinder, factory worker, bakery clerk, waitress, park landscape assistant, museum receptionist, etc.) Her themes often center on people's relationships—to each other and to the land.
Many of her books bring history alive for younger readers, tackling difficult topics: racism, guns, war, environmental challenges—yet they have a lighter side and a drama that allow younger readers to look at these issues with hope and courage.
She has a compatriot in the arts in her husband, David Mataya—a designer, artist, and musician. They have three great kids—Nadja, Mirjana, and Dmitri. They live in Hudson, Wisconsin, where they enjoy the nearby rivers and woods.
