Danna Smith


Danna Smith lives in the wine country of northern California. Born and raised in Salt Lake City, Utah, she was exposed to all sorts of creatures through her father, who trained, bred, and rehabilitated animals. It was not uncommon to find bobcats, alligators, monkeys, hawks, or even vultures at her home. But Danna's primary interest when she was young was a pen; she wrote her first poem when she was eight, her first short story when she was ten, and her first picture book when she was seventeen.  Danna is now the author of more than 20 books for children, many of which reflect that early exposure to, and love for, animals.

A delightful poem. I wish I had had this one to read to my children and grandchildren when I was reading them nursery rhymes.
