Born in Denmark, Ms. Minarik came to the United States at four years of age. The English language was hard for her to learn, but, oh how well she uses it now. She obtained degrees in both education and psychology and wrote easy readers for her students at school and her daughter at home. They have since been shared with the world. Her simple text along with Maurice Sendak's gentle illustrations made these "I Can Read:Level 1" classics the first of their kind, thanks to the legendary editor at Harper & Row Publishers, Ursula Nordstrom.
