Rebecca Berlind

Biography

Rebecca Berlind lives in Vermont and was born in 1999.

I love to write, but before I learned to write I learned to act. My two passions combined fed off each other and helped me to grow as a writer and an actress. Without theatre I would not be where I am today. Theatre taught me that life is not about being shy or deciding that there are certain things you just can't do, no matter how hard you try. Theatre taught me the opposite, that life has no boundaries and hard work pays off, and most importantly that you can't change who you are, you can only aspire to be a better version of yourself. When I was younger I believed in boundaries and now, because of writing and theatre, I am confident in myself and my decisions, and I know that there are no unbreakable boundaries.

    When You Reach Me

    When You Reach Me

    by Rebecca Stead

    Four mysterious letters change Miranda’s world forever.

    By sixth grade, Miranda and her best friend, Sal, know how to navigate their New York City neighborhood. They know where it’s safe to go, like the local grocery store, and they know whom to avoid, like the crazy guy on the corner.

    But things start to unravel. Sal gets punched by a new kid for what seems like no reason, and he shuts Miranda out of his life. The apartment key that Miranda’s mom keeps hidden for emergencies is stolen. And then Miranda finds a mysterious note scrawled on a tiny slip of paper:

    I am coming to save your friend’s life, and my own.
    I must ask two favors. First, you must write me a letter.

    The notes keep coming, and Miranda slowly realizes that whoever is leaving them knows all about her, including things that have not even happened yet. Each message brings her closer to believing that only she can prevent a tragic death. Until the final note makes her think she’s too late.

    There Was An Old Monster

    There Was An Old Monster

    by Rebecca Emberley and Rebecca Emberley

    A brand-new monster twist, by a Caldecott medalist and his daughter!

    There was an old monster who swallowed a tick
    I don't know why he swallowed that tick
    'Cause it made him feel sick!

    When he swallowed some ants, he danced in his pants. He swallowed a lizard, a bat, a jackal, and a bear. Then he tried to swallow a lion... ROAR! — Now that monster is no more!

    Children will laugh along with the funny text, bright bold illustrations, and delightful song created by three generations of the talented Emberley family. Rebecca Emberley has written a rollicking text, which she has illustrated in collaboration with her dad, Caldecott award winner Ed Emberley. And Rebecca's daughter, Adrian, has recorded the fun catchy song.

    Listen to the There Was an Old Monster song sung by Adrian.
