About Moira Rose Donohue
I am thrilled to announce the release of TREE FROGS (Life in the Leaves) and THE U.S. CONSTITUTION (Why it Matters to You), both from Scholastic Children's Press. They also published GREAT WHITE SHARKS (a Junior Library Guild selection) and BEAVERS in 2018, as well as two books about Gettysburg. With National Geographic Kids, I have written several true animal chapter books including PARROT GENIUS, DOG ON A BIKE, and MY BEST FRIEND IS A DOLPHIN , and LITTLE KIDS FIRST BIG BOOK OF THE RAIN FOREST (2017). Also released in 2017 was THE INVASION OF NORMANDY with North Star Editions (another Junior Library Guild selection).
I have written two series of biographies for the educational market with State Standards Publishing, Inc., with another series on the way; a biography about Lyndon Johnson with ABDO, which received a starred review from Booklist in 2016 and two books about animated punctuation marks, ALFIE THE APOSTROPHE and PENNY AND THE PUNCTUATION BEE, both with Albert Whitman. And there are many more coming soon!
I'm originally from New York City, but now live in St. Petersburg, FL. I love hockey, tap dancing, old movies, and dogs. Please visit my website at www.moirarosedonohue.net for more information about my books and my school visits.
