About the Author

Science writer Kimberly Ridley is an award-winning author of nonfiction books for children. Her joy is sharing her love of nature and writing with children through her books and school visits. Kimberly's picture books, The Secret Pool (Kirkus starred review) and The Secret Bay, have received honors including Riverby Awards from the John Burroughs Association for "outstanding natural history books for young people." Her newest book is Extreme Survivors: Animals That Time Forgot. A former magazine editor, Kimberly has written for publications including The Boston Globe, the Christian Science Monitor, and Downeast Magazine. She holds an MS in Science Journalism. Rebekah Raye is an artist beloved for her bird and animal paintings and sculpture, derived from her affinity with the natural world around her studio in East Blue Hill, Maine. In Rebekah's words, "My early interest in animals of all kinds continues to be the focus of my painting and sculpture. Our pet chickens, geese, and cats--as well as the wild fox, bobcat, crows, and deer--are my inspiration. The more I learn about the animals I paint, the more I understand how we are all related." Rebekah's award-winning children's books include The Very Best Bed, Bear-ly There, The Secret Pool, and Swimming Home, all published by Tilbury House.

I encourage parents, grandparents, and friends of children everywhere to read the book with a young one and then open the door to see if you can find a vernal pool." -- Cheryl Charles, Ph.D., Co-Founder, Children & Nature Network "Book Jacket" "With poetic text and informative sidebars, this beautiful book delightfully captures the drama and mystery of vernal pools. Dive in and get lost in this magical world." -- Joyce Sidman, Newbery Honor winning children's author and winner of the 2013 NCTE Award for Excellen "Book Jacket" This surprisingly engaging look at a habitat not often covered in science curricula and popular nonfiction series strikes a harmonious balance of conversational language, factual text and informative illustrations. -- Kirkus "Kirkus Starred Review"
