When reading a series of books to my class, I always like them to know a bit more about the author. If he/she has written so many wonderful books, I think they deserve the recognition! Here is a brief biography I made to use with my 1st graders about Laura Numeroff as we read her "If You Give..." series during our author study.
It is in the form of a paper book, 11 half pages total (prints on 6.) Students cut out pages and I staple together before we do a shared reading at the carpet. The words used in the biography are age appropriate for 1st grade. The book has a mix of real photos and clip art (when I couldn't find real photos that applied!) Enjoy!
P.S. If you like this simple biography, check out my Eric Carle one!
