About the Author

Kate Jordan has done just about everything that has to do with art: drawing, painting, weaving, ceramics . . . even ink printing and bookbinding! But if you ask her what her favorite out of the bunch is, she'll easily say digital drawing. Brought up in a military family that moved around a lot, Kate lived an exciting childhood full of new places, new people, and new things. Now that she's older and out of school, she finds that she prefers a quieter life at home in Fredericksburg, Virginia, with her family. She hopes to write her own picture book to give to her children one day, but for now, she enjoys helping other people tell their stories with her beautiful, colorful art. She's happiest when she's drawing and listening to music, especially when she's nice and cozy under a mountain of blankets on a rainy day.You can see more of Kate's art in her DeviantArt gallery here: www.deviantart.com/rahkshi-miraka


"This lovely book is a testament to the power of simple, mindful acts. When Mama Grows with Me plants a seed and helps children grow more attuned to themselves and the rhythms and beauty of the natural world."

-Mary Quattlebaum, author of Jo MacDonald Had a Garden and Brother, Sister, Me and You

"A beautifully descriptive read. Including interesting gardening facts for children, this book is designed in an interactive way that will be loved by all members of the family. Poignant and thought provoking-a real winner!"

-Shelly Mack, author of The Turtle and the Spider and Landis

"This book brings the natural world to life through the seasons. The characters nurture plants from seeds to flowers, and there are playful connections with insects and animals as the characters emulate the world they see through yoga! As the story unfolds, readers learn about being connected to nature, and themselves, with patience."

-Jeana Myers, PhD soil science, gardener, and extension educator

"Rebecca is masterful at recognizing the connection yoga grows among family members. When Mama Grows with Me incorporates a kind respect for nature, utilizes yoga poses to maintain a healthy mind and body, and recognizes the importance of delaying gratification. There is genuine love, honor, and compassion on each page. The family using the text will be blessed physically, socially, and emotionally with each read. My children and I grew by utilizing her first book, and I cannot wait to continue that growth with Rebecca's second book!"

-Fred Hoffmann, public educator, YogaFit master trainer
