Dolores Johnson is the talented author-illustrator of many books for children, including Now Let Me Fly, What Will Mommy Do When I'm in School, and Seminole Diary, which was an American Bookseller Pick of the List
She writes, "My editor was the first person to suggest to me that I write a book about Kwanzaa, and I am so glad she did. In writing this book, I was able to explore new territory other than my usual fiction stories. I was able to examine history, design crafts, experiment with recipes, as well as offer all children a way to participate in a fascinating cultural celebration."
A graduate of Boston University, Ms. Johnson was born and raised in New Britain, Connecticut. She now lives in Inglewood, California
