Author Visit: Virginia native, Henry Cole

I am so excited! Not only is today Halloween but the school I work out is having a Virginia author visit! I work at the same school my children attended… I wish this author visit program had been around for them! Our students are blessed by this opportunity.

Henry Cole was born in 1955 on a dairy farm near Purcellville, VA, and was an adored elementary-school science teacher for 16 years. He has since illustrated over 80 popular picture books. Mr. Cole has always loved art and science, which has made him a keen observer of details in nature. He now lives in both Florida and Virginia.

Cole is the author and illustrator of 12 books himself. He first published Jack’s Garden in 1997. Visit his website at HenryCole.

I am thrilled to have a signed copy his latest book, A Teeny Tiny Halloween! He is the illustrator and Lauren L. Wohl (a native New Yorker) is the author.
