She has an interesting personal story. She shares her story in this video, including her challenges with her learning disability. She has a delightful way of sharing her life. Here is a list of her books from Amazon.
Ms. Polacco also has a wonderful web site. It is filled with her current happenings and activities to go with each of her books. She has many printables and beautiful bookmarks. She has a Facebook page with updates as well. I created a Pinterest Board with some ideas from around the web.

Which made it even more exciting!
