As a seasoned educator in the field of early childhood, Shelley Michael brings her love of children and her insight into the mind of a child to her writing. A constructivist by heart, she believes in learning through play and that means the more a child gets their hands dirty, they more they are learning through experience. “The Adventures of Louise and Her Pink Polka Dot Suitcase” is Michael’s first book series and was inspired by her love of transportation and traveling with her daughter and husband. “All Aboard!
” — the first in the series — was released in 2017 at BookExpo in New York City. When she isn’t traveling and getting inspiration for her next books, Michael can be found spending time in her beloved hometown of Webster Groves.
