ABOUT THE INSTRUCTOR:
Sheree Fitch’s first two books, Toes in My Nose (1987) and Sleeping Dragons All Around (1989), launched her career as a poet, rhymester, and a “kind of Canadian female Dr. Seuss.” Since then, she has won almost every major award for Canadian children’s literature, including the Vicky Metcalfe Award for a Body of Work Inspirational to Canadian Children. She has more than 25 books to her credit, including her latest book for children, Summer Feet, and a collection of moments, You Won’t Always Be This Sad. Her poem “Because We Love, We Cry,” written after the tragic events in Portapique, NS, has just been published as a keepsake book by Nimbus.
