Dr. Betsy Diamant-Cohen has been a children's librarian for more than 25 years, and has worked in public libraries, school libraries, academic libraries, non-profit libraries, children's museums, preschools, home-daycares and more. She has three children (who are now all adults!), a wonderful husband, and lots of stuffed animals. Her wealth of personal experience combined with a thirst for knowledge and a passion for giving all children equal chances to be successful has led to the development of the Mother Goose on the Loose early literacy program, the publication of several books, and the production of a few CDs. Diamant-Cohen was named a ""Mover and Shaker"" by Library Journal in 2004 and completed her doctorate in 2006.
