ABOUT JEAN REIDY

  • Jean Reidy’s fun, lively and award-winning picture books have earned their spots as favorites among readers and listeners of all ages and from all over the world.  She is a frequent presenter on writing and reading and at schools and storytimes across the country—in person and virtually. Jean is a member of the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators, the National Council of Teachers of English, the Colorado Council International Reading Association and she has served on the board of Reach Out and Read Colorado. In 2011, her “Light Up the Library” Auction, in partnership with Books for Africa, filled the library at Musana Children’s Home in Iganga, Uganda. In addition to her books for children, Jean’s articles on home, family, travel and writing have appeared in over fifty publications. Jean is represented by Erin Murphy of Erin Murphy Literary Agency. She writes from her home in Colorado where she lives right across the street from her neighborhood library … which she visits nearly every day.
