About Stephanie Calmenson

 Stephanie Calmenson grew up in Brooklyn, New York never imagining she would become a writer someday. She began her professional life as an early childhood teacher and had the pleasure of reading to children and discovering which books captivate them. When budget cuts left her looking for work, Calmenson became a children’s book editor and got to see how a book is made.

Planning to go back to teaching, she enrolled in a Master’s Program in Education at New York University where Calmenson took a course called, “Writing for Children.” Her very first story was published in a children’s magazine and she was off and writing!

Check out books Calmenson’s other books, Dinner at the Panda Palace, Late for School!, and Ollie’s School Day to see if they make you smile. Even the nonfiction books, Rosie, A Visiting Dog’s Story and May I Pet Your Dog? have a big dose of humor thanks to their four-legged stars.

Good Morning,

What a cheerful way to begin the day! Another wonderful book by Stephanie Calmenson. It is a great introduction for a class filled with youngsters to enjoy learning about Dachshunds as well as seeing the colorful and lovely illustrations. The story and pictures go together so well. I especially love the back piece and learned some new things about this breed of dog. I think that any young child will truly enjoy this Storytelling Time.
Thanks Stephanie for the exciting story and Zoe for the lovely pictures.
