ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Susan Sachs Levine grew up in Cincinnati, Ohio, and started her career in marketing with Procter & Gamble. She then moved to Columbus where she became vice president of marketing and environmental affairs with PKL, an international packaging company. Susan is a wildlife enthusiast and has traveled extensively to learn about the natural world, especially endangered species.
Always a lover of picture books, Susan identified the need for books about major Ohio cities when her children were young. Her first book, Packard Takes Flight: A Bird’s-Eye View of Columbus, Ohio teaches students about Ohio’s capital city. Harriett’s Homecoming: A High-Flying Tour of Cincinnati, Ohio highlights all that is special about the Queen City. Both books are based on the true story of Peregrine falcons that nest on the tall buildings downtown.
Susan now lives in Naples, Florida, where she is enchanted by the wildlife, particularly the birds. She is a Florida Master Naturalist and is excited to share all she has learned with children through her recent new works. Jenny’s First Catch: An Adventure with Nature’s Wading Birds was published in 2020 and follows a young Roseate Spoonbill as she tries to learn how to fish with her unique bill. In Gilbert’s Migration Vacation: The Story of an Original Snowbird, set to release in spring 2023, children learn about Sanderlings as well as other shorebirds, and the amazing migrations they make between their breeding and wintering grounds.
In all her books, Susan blends her interest in wildlife with her imaginative storytelling to entertain and teach young children, while being a great resource for teachers and parents.
