KIDS' COLUMN


WELCOME!


Is there something you wish you could read a book (or story or poem) about but can't find it? Please tell me--I am always looking for new ideas!

    If you click on Contact at the top of this page, you will be whisked to another page with a big empty box where you can write whatever you want. Remember to check with your parents or teacher before you click "send".

    If you ask me a question, I will write back.

Here is how you say Apolzon: "apples on" as in "apples on a tree."

Kids today have a different life than kids did when I was young. If you are curious about this, go to the top of this page and click on Kids Long Ago.
    What will be different for kids when you're grown up?

TREES


Sycamore trees are great for climbing because their bark is smooth.

Welcome!


                                                                                               Linda Rae Apolzon has been writing stories and poems all her life. When she became a mother she rediscovered the world of picture books and enjoyed them as much as her children did. After she searched unsucessfully for a book on tools for her son, she wrote one herself and sold it to Golden Books. She went on to write another Golden Book, I'll Share With You, and a novel, Stray Cat. Over the years she has published stories and poems in Highlights for Children, Ranger Rick, Hopscotch, Boys' Quest, and Spider.
    Now she is working on several picture books and a book about trees.
