About the Author
Aimee Reid is an author with a background in education and editing. She taught high school English, Music, and Special Education before she began writing for children. Aimee's picture books include Mama's Day with Little Gray, You are My Friend: The Story of Mister Rogers and His Neighborhood, Welcome Home, and First Morning Sun. As a child, Aimee was a voracious reader and could often be foundâ€”curled in a corner, tucked in the crook of a tree limb, or crouched by a book rack in the grocery store aisleâ€”carried away to the world of a book. Now Aimee sends her own stories out into the world. It brings her great joy to think of other children nestled on a lap or cuddled on a couch reading good books to share.
