About the Author:
Leanne M. Benson is an author who received a degree from the University of Minnesota.
Children are a vital part of Leanne’s life. She has enjoyed working to empower young people through several programs and projects, including more than a decade in the English Secondary Language (ESL) Program in the public-school system, as an Art Adventure volunteer, as well as coordinator, and high school student services secretary.
Experience such as traveling to Tanzania, Africa where she and her husband celebrated their wedding on the top of a mountain, provide her with, what she calls, “trinkets”. She concludes, “These life lessons or ‘trinkets’ found throughout the years, are useful when writing children’s stories. This book and her present manuscript are both filled with playful illustrations and most importantly, life lessons and family values, that are not just told, rather they are seen through the eyes of a child.
