About the author
JiJi Talmas "Ms. JiJi" was born in a small town near the sea until she moved far away to a land of snow and the Rocky Mountains. Before she started writing books, JiJi got a graduate degree in Early Childhood Education. After that, just to shake things up, she achieved the Award of Excellence for her contribution to public education and later on, received the Kathleen Stroud Award for demonstrating exceptional leadership in supporting families and children’s education. She loves to write books and short stories to educate and connect with children using beautiful illustration and heartfelt characters that inspire.
When she is not writing, JiJi spends most of her time reading, connecting with nature, hiking, and practice mindfulness.
