Fran Manushkin

Fran Manushkin has written more than eighty picture books and easy readers, including the popular Katie Woo series and the Pedro series. She is also the author of Bamboo for Me, Bamboo for You! and Baby, Come Out!, the latter of which has been translated into eight languages. She has been an elementary school teacher and for many years was a children’s book editor at Harper & Row and Random House. Her mentors at Harper & Row, Ursula Nordstrom and Charlotte Zolotow, taught her everything she knows! She owes them a deep debt of gratitude. Fran Manushkin wrote Happy in Our Skin so that all children would know how wonderful they are and would see how much they share with other children and their families. In 2017 the town of Branford, Connecticut, selected Happy in Our Skin as their One Book, One Town selection, giving nine hundred copies to all the children in their early care centers.
