About the Author
Elizabeth Verdick has been writing books since 1997, the year her daughter was born. Her two children are the inspiration for nearly everything she writes. Before becoming an author, Elizabeth edited books for children and parents. These days she writes books for babies, toddlers, teens, and every age in between. She especially loves creating new board book series--including the Happy Healthy Baby(R) series, which is designed to capture the interest of your littlest readers. Elizabeth's Toddler Tools(R) series helps young children and their parents cope with those tough times and transitions that happen every day (like naptime and bedtime). In the Best Behavior(R) series, she helps toddlers reach new milestones and improve their day-to-day behavior. Elizabeth also enjoys getting the chance to look at the funny side of life in the Laugh and Learn(R) series, which helps kids ages 8-13 get a handle on the social-emotional skills they're developing throughout the elementary and middle school years. She teamed up with Dr. Elizabeth Reeve to write The Survival Guide for Kids with Autism Spectrum Disorder (And Their Parents). Elizabeth lives with her family and a houseful of pets near St. Paul, Minnesota. Elizabeth Reeve, M.D., is a child psychiatrist at HealthPartners in Minnesota, where her clinical work focuses primarily on children and adults with developmental disabilities. In addition to patient care, Elizabeth is involved in teaching, speaks in the community to educate others in the field of developmental disabilities, and helps young adults with ASD transition into college and the workforce. Elizabeth has been honored by the Minnesota Psychiatric Society and NAMI for her dedication to sharing her expertise as a teacher and a mentor. She is on the board of directors for Bridging Hearts, a non-profit focused on providing social experiences for young adults with mild developmental differences. In her spare time she is an avid gardener in the summer and enjoys downhill skiing in the winter. She lives in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
