But through an attic window Anne could see the branches of a tall chestnut tree. This small glimpse of nature gave Anne hope and courage. It inspired her writing, which, in turn, inspired the whole world.

individual biography
Biographical or historical data
Jane Kohuth began her love affair with children's books before she could walk. At her preschool entrance interview, she introduced herself and her sister as Frances and Gloria -- Russell Hoban's iconic badger characters (she got in). She's also a big fan of Scrabble and GRE analogies, but has found that writing for kids is the most fun of all. Jane has a degree in English and Creative Writing from Brandeis University as well as a master's degree in Theological Studies from Harvard Divinity School. She loves to write about sensitive kids and goofy animals, but will tackle most subjects as long as she can make the words sing. Her early reader Ducks go vroom (Random House, Spring 2011) was one of Parents Magazine's 20 Best Books of 2011. Estie the mensch (Random House, Fall 2011) is a PJ Library selection. Her picture book Duck sock hop (Dial) is now out and is a Kirkus Critic's Pick.
