Author Notes

Joanna Cole was born in Newark, New Jersey on August 11, 1944. She attended the University of Massachusetts, Indiana University, and City College of New York where she earned a degree in Psychology.

Ms. Cole has worked as an elementary school teacher, a librarian, and a children's book editor. As a child, she loved science and explaining things and this is why she started writing children's books. She writes fiction and non-fiction titles. Her most well-known series are the Magic School Bus and the "Body."

Cole's books have received a number of honors. A Horse's Body and A Snake's Body were both named Outstanding Science Trade Books for children by the joint committee of the National Science Teachers Association and the Children's Book Council. In 1982, A Snake's Body was named a Children's Choice Book by the joint committee of the International Reading Association and the Children's Book Council. Both A Cat's Body and A Bird's Body were Junior Literary Guild selections. In 1991, she was awarded the Washington Post/Children's Book Guild Nonfiction award.

School Library Journal Review

Gr 3-6-Another compendium of childhood diversions from this creative team. This time the collection is of travel games and songs. Geared toward older children, many of the selections demand quite a bit of verbal and intellectual prowess. Some of the games require props such as maps or pencil and paper or a small degree of advance preparation. Other games assume car travel, but there is a good variety available for other modes of transportation. Each game is clearly described in large print with numbered steps and has a black-and-white line drawing. Additionally, parents will be pleased to see that many of the games are not competitive in nature. Buy this title and watch it travel.-Christy Norris Blanchette, Valley Cottage Library, NY (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
