Author Biography

  • Deb L. Marciano, Valdosta State University

    Deb L. Marciano ([email protected]) is an educator who believes any topic can be addressed through a picture book. Her personal library of almost 2500 books are continually used in her university level courses, not only as enjoyable children's literature, but also as a means to discover and engage readers of all ages across the curriculum. She and five ECSE students recently engaged Italian school children with picture books through the Study Abroad to Italy program she developed for Valdosta State University.
