Emily Arnold Mccully

"Emily Arnold McCully was born in Galesburg, Illinois, and grew up ""a daredevil child,"" always climbing trees or buildings. She made it to college intact, however, and received her B.A. from Brown University and an M.A. in art history from Columbia University.

Emily McCully's artwork has been included in the International Biennale at Bratislava, and she has won a Christopher Award for Picnic, one of the many picture books that she has both written and illustrated.

Writing also for adults, Ms. McCully has received grants from the National Endowment for the Arts and New York State Council on the Arts. Her book, A Craving was nominated for an American Book Award.

The idea for Mirette on the High Wire began as a biography of real-life daredevil Blondin. But the author changed her mind to accomodate the tree-climbing child and risk-taking adult she was and is.

Fly into fun with a determined girl engineer named Min who finds a clever way to join her big sister's games. This Level G book is perfect for young readers building their vocabulary and skills!

Big Sister Ann and her friend Bess are playing school—and Min wants to join in. But Ann tells Min she's not ready for school. "Here is the line." says Ann, "You may not step over it."

Min doesn't give up so easily, though—she finds a rock and a board, some rope and a tube, and builds herself a catapult and rocket. Launching herself into the air and over the line, Min ends up in the middle of the playdate without stepping over the line.

Beginning readers will cheer underdog Min's triumphant landing in this easy-to-read book that celebrates ingenuity and perseverance. Detailed watercolor illustrations by Caldecott medalist Emily Arnold McCully showcase the budding engineer's brilliant plan. They'll all play rocket scientists instead!

The award-winning I Like to Read® series focuses on guided reading levels A through G, based upon Fountas and Pinnell standards. Acclaimed author-illustrators--including winners of Caldecott, Theodor Seuss Geisel, and Coretta Scott King honors—create original, high quality illustrations that support comprehension of simple text and are fun for kids to read with parents, teachers, or on their own!

For early-to-mid first grade readers, Level G books feature more complex storylines than prior levels, and a wider variety of structure and punctuation. Illustrations offer support for decoding the more challenging vocabulary words introduced.
