ABOUT ERIN DEALEY

  • Author Erin Dealey is a K-12 Language Arts/ theater teacher, former Co-RA for SCBWI CA North/Central, and motivational speaker. A poster on her wall reads: “You can’t scare me–I’m a teacher!” She LOVES school visits and takes every opportunity to motivate kids to read and write.
     
    K is for KINDERGARTEN (Sleeping Bear/August 2017, illustrations by Joseph Cowman) is an Amazon #1 New Release. Companion books GRANDMA’S FAVORITE and GRANDPA’S FAVORITE (Kane Miller 2018) celebrate grandparents all over the world– from the same team who did BABIES COME FROM AIRPORTS (2017 /illustrated by Luciana Navarro Powell), a kids’-eye view of adoption. Forthcoming picture books include PETER EASTER FROG (Illus. by G. Brian Karas/ Caitlyn Dlouhy Books/Atheneum S&S 2019) and SNOWGLOBE WISHES (Illus. by Claire Shorrock/ Sleeping Beat Press 2019.)
     
    KIRKUS cheers Dealey’s holiday book, DECK THE WALLS (Sleeping Bear Press): “…hilarious…’’Tis the season to be jolly,’ after all, and this rollicking parody neatly fits the bill.”
     
    Her first picture book, GOLDIE LOCKS HAS CHICKEN POX (Atheneum/S&S, Aladdin Paperbacks–still in print!) is also available in Braille. Kirkus Reviews called Dealey’s SLJ “Remarkable Read,” LITTLE BO PEEP CAN’T GET TO SLEEP (Atheneum/ S&S) “An over-the-moon bedtime read…!”
     

    Reading is POWER!
