Sydell Rosenberg (1929-1996) was a charter member of the Haiku Society of America in 1968 and served as HSA's Secretary in 1975. Her short poems - notably haiku and senryu - as well as other poetry, were published in various magazines and anthologies. Syd received her M.A. in English as a Second Language from Hunter College in 1972. It was Syd's dream to publish a book of haiku for children. She lived, wrote, and taught in New York City.

She currently resides in Washington, D.C.

Reviews

"As a teacher Sydell Rosenberg was attuned to the spirit of children, and her sophisticated and fun haiku are particularly accessible for young readers. Touching on a wide range of subjects, Rosenberg invites kids to look and look again. Her keen observations and lilting imagery will inspire them to do just that.

Sawsan Chalabi's charmingly quirky illustrations and stylized lettering present each poem with dash and personality that will enchant kids. Her delicately lined drawings are infused with vibrancy from a gorgeous color palette. Just like Rosenberg's haiku, Chalabi's pages are animated with a love for life that will resonate with kids--and adults.

H is for Haiku would make a terrific gift for poetry lovers and a wonderful addition to home, school, and public library collections."--Celebrate Picture Books
"...a delightful exploration of the alphabet through Haiku. Each page explores a moment in time with lovely, lyrical and luscious language. Colorful, playful illustrations complement the poetic text. The illustrations feature whimsical word art that enhances the reading experience." --Writer's Rumpus
