About the Author
Ann Herbert Scott describes herself as "a transplanted Easterner who has come to love the wide skies and far mountain ranges of the West." She is the author of SAM, ON MOTHER'S LAP, and several other picture books. She lives Benicia, California.
Glo Coalson grew up in Abilene, Texas, and currently lives in Dallas. For nearly a year, she lived with her brother and his wife in Kotzbue, Alaska, an Eskimo village.
"Sitting on his mother's lap, a young Eskimo boy cheerfully gathers his belongings until he, some toys, his puppy, and a blanket are all crowded together in the rocking chair. When his baby sister cries, the boy claims there is no room for her, but Mother proves him wrong, and the threesome settle comfortably in the chair. Soft illustrations depict a cozy scene and a loving family." -- Copyright © 1992 The Horn Book, Inc. All rights reserved.
"An update of the 1972 collaboration. Coalson improves upon a fine original work . . . this one is a top choice." School Library Journal, Starred
