Author Biography

Jeanne Holmberg loves to put a fun spin on learning! Her goal is to inspire active learning and rich discussion. Before embarking on this adventure, Jeanne enjoyed life and learning as an educational leader, actuarial analyst, research chemist and volunteer at a local children's museum. When she is not writing, Jeanne is inspired by spending time outdoors with her Scottish Terrier named Rocky, photographing nature, attending car shows, reading historical fiction, and surrounding herself with family and friends. Jeanne lives by the inspirational quote "Live well, laugh often, love much" by Bessie Anderson Stanley. If she could add one more thought to Bessie Anderson Stanley's inspirational quote it would be "Live well, laugh often, love much" and learn all along the way!

As an undergraduate, Jeanne double majored in mathematics and chemistry. She earned a master's degree in education from Elms College and a post-master's degree in educational leadership from Westfield State University.

Is That A Friendly Dinosaur Knocking On Your Door? is a children's picture book written and illustrated by Jeanne Holmberg. What would you do if a dinosaur knocked on your door and wanted to spend time with you? What color would it be? One of the colors of the rainbow or some other shade? Maybe you could open an ice cream shop or fly a kite high in the sky together. Maybe you could build a fort and play hide-and-seek. Maybe you and your dino friend could play sports outdoors or enjoy a fun indoor activity, play some instruments, or listen to music and dance. There is no limit to the fun you can have with your dino pal when you use your imagination.

I absolutely loved Is That A Friendly Dinosaur Knocking On Your Door? The characters are fun-loving, colorful dinos with a different idea of fun. Each new dino and its unique personality and interests will inspire kids to try new things, play new games, and use their imaginations in a healthy manner. This story also encourages parents to teach children how to make choices early in life so that they can make more complex decisions when they get older. I also love how there are easy-to-understand work pages at the end of the book that will reinforce positive learning habits. The bright and beautiful illustrations will keep kids laughing and turning the pages. I recommend this book by Jeanne Holmberg to young children who are ready to read and like to learn something new along the way.
