ABOUT THE BOOK

BE A MAKER: How many things can you make in a day? A tower, a friend, a change? Rhyme, repetition, and a few seemingly straightforward questions engage young readers in a discussion about the many things we make - and the ways we can make a difference in the world. This simple, layered story celebrates creativity through beautiful rhyming verse and vibrant illustrations with a timely message.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Katey lives in Upper Makefield, Pennsylvania (really!) with her husband and three adventurous daughters makers. Katey is the author of picture books Magnolia Mudd and the Super Jumptastic Launcher Deluxe and Grandmother Thorn.

"Howe's text has just the right tone and is highly relatable, while Fabbretti's illustrations are comic book bold, funny, and capture myriad emotions. VERDICT A girl who loves inventing finds an unexpected ally in her uncle's bride-to-be. Fun text meets spot-on illustrations with a little learning thrown in--it's a winning combo. --School Library Journal
