Sheree Fitch, poet, writer, and performer, is the author of several picture books. The poetry in her first book was created long before it was published. When her first son was born she began writing poems for him -- in a way, passing on the legacy of the love of language which had been so important in her family home. A second son was born; she attended university (receiving a B.A. from St. Thomas University in Fredericton, N.B. and working on an M.A. at Acadia University in Wolfville, N.S.); and she began a busy career performing her poems in schools throughout Atlantic Canada, before she was persuaded to send her material to Doubleday Canada. With her writing and her performances, Sheree Fitch aims to share her love of words with others so that they may enjoy and cherish the gift of language as she does.
