My name is Mira Reisberg and I'm a Doctor of Education who has taught courses in children's literature and writing and illustrating children's picture books at Washington State University, Northern Illinois University, University of Berkeley Extension, and San Francisco City College Extension. I wrote my 370 page dissertation on children's picture books and have taught, consulted with, and mentored many award-winning and some New York Times best selling picture book authors and illustrators. Over the past 20 years I have worked professionally as a children's picture book editor, art director, book designer and have also illustrated and written for my own award-winning picture books. I'm a great believer in the pedagogy of pleasure, meaning if you enjoy doing something you'll do it a lot and consequently get good at it. I also love to play.
