About the Author
Carolyn Cinami DeCristofano has been named a Creative Teaching Partner (specialty: Curriculum and Planning) by the Massachusetts Cultural Council. Carolyn is an artist who can work effectively with educators, schools, districts, etc., to help integrate the arts (in this case, writing) into the broader school curriculum. As a child, Carolyn enjoyed reading and writing. She even imagined herself as a writer. As she grew older, however, her interests changed. She decided to teach science, instead. "For the past fifteen or so years, I have been fortunate to work with teachers, museum educators, and educational researchers on fascinating projects. But I have never really stopped writing. I write poetry but don t share it often. I try to write stories, too. And I thoroughly enjoy shaping engaging science books that I hope will capture the reader's imagination on lots of different levels," she said. Carolyn is the author of Leonardo's ABC's (Museum of Science, Boston). She has developed science programs with NASA and the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics. When she's not writing, she enjoys traveling, hiking, reading, and playing games. Carolyn lives in Plympton, Massachusetts, with her husband and two cats, Napi and Emilio.
