Pioneering world traveler, writer, photographer, and peace advocate Eliza Scidmore dreamed of beautifying the nation’s capital, where she lived. Her dream became a reality in 1912 when, because of her years of persistence, cherry trees were planted across Washington, DC. This picture book for young readers tells the inspiring story.
David Clemesha and Andrea Zimmerman are married and have created several children’s books together, including Digger Man, Fire Engine Man and Trashy Town, an ALA Notable Book. Clemesha grew up in England and moved to the United States when he was 16. He always loved playing tennis, drawing and reading. He studied English in college and became an elementary school teacher. Clemesha and Zimmerman live in San Diego, California, with their three sons.
