About the Author --

Alva Sachs earned her Bachelor of Science degree at the University of Illinois and her Master of Education degree from Northern Illinois University, and has more than sixteen years of teaching experience. Her life-long passion has been writing for kids. Her days in the classroom provided the inspiration for becoming a children’s writer. In 2007, she published Circus Fever, which has been selected as a finalist for the 2009 Indie Excellence Award and the 2009 Best Books Award, received a 2008 Hollywood Book Festival Honorable Mention, the 2009 Seal of Excellence from Creative Child Magazine, and the 2010 Eric Hoeffer Award for Excellence in small press publishing. Right after the success of her first book, she published On Your Mark, Get Set, Go! It has been awarded with the 2010 Seal of Excellence from Creative Child Magazine and was selected as a finalist for the 2010 Indie Excellence Award, and the 2010 International Book Award. Reading her stories in person at a variety of venues and public events, has opened up a whole new “classroom” for Alva. Her complete dedication to the mission of sharing the fun of reading has brought her a wonderful gift in return: experiencing how the young audience and their families enjoy, participate, and become interested in the whole process of creating a story. Being a board member of Reading Is FUNdamental of Southern California has also allowed Alva to foster literacy by helping families to build home libraries. Visit Alva at www.alvasachs.com.
