Gilda Berger has published more than 200 books for young readers, many co-authored with her husband, Melvin Berger.

She is happy to adapt her talk to fit a classroom curriculum or a teacher's writing program. Gilda read selections from her books to the children and encourages audience participation. In connection with her book, Celebrate!, the author has also developed a creative workshop for school visits.
