"There is nothing more rewarding for an author than seeing and hearing that their books are being read, enjoyed, discussed and read again. That's why I love visiting schools and classrooms. Seeing young faces light up, sharing in their laughter, responding to their questions, and marveling at their writings or the hallway artwork that has been inspired by my books. That's why I visit schools!" —Tedd Arnold

Tedd Arnold is the author and/or illustrator of more than 50 books for children, including No Jumping on the Bed (IRA-CBC Children's Choice and recommended by Jim Trelease), Green Wilma (IRA-CBC Children’s Choice; Storytime (PBS) Featured Selection), and the Parts series (Christian Science Monitor Top Pick of the Experts).

Description of the Author’s Presentation

He tells of his beginnings first as an artist, then as an author, and how ideas become stories and how stories create pictures.

The children’s hallway artwork and writings he enjoys as "a constant source of wonder."
