Deborah Heiligman


At age five, Deborah Heiligman checked out her first library book—What Is a Butterfly?—and her love of science and nature has grown ever since. She has written one other Let's-Read-and-Find-Out Science book, On the Move, illustrated by Lizzy Rockwell. She is also the author of the middle grade biography Charles and Emma, which was a National Book Award finalist and a Michael L. Printz Honor Book. Ms. Heiligman lives in New York City with her husband and two sons.
