Miranda Paul has already made a name for herself in the world of children’s book publishing. Her One Plastic Bag, published in February, was named a Junior Library Guild Selection and received great reviews by Kirkus Review, The Horn Book, School Library Journal and Publisher’s Weekly. She’s the Executive VP of Outreach for We Need Diverse Books™ (www.diversebooks.org), administrator of RateYourStory.org, a site for aspiring writers, was the cover story of Women Magazine‘s January issue, and is the new co-Regional Adviser of the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators Wisconsin chapter.
Now comes word that The School Library Journal has put Miranda’s new book, Water is Water, on its Summer Prediction for Caldecott/Newbery- award list.
These two picture books help children understand environment issues facing the world.
