About the Author
Judy Young remembers showing her grandmother a poem she had written when she was about ten years old. Her grandmother encouraged her to keep writing, and Judy did! Judy is the author of several award-winning children's fiction, poetry and nonfiction books that are used extensively in elementary classrooms. One of Judy's most cherished honors was attending performances in which her book, R is for Rhyme, A Poetry Alphabet, was choreographed by the Tanner Creative Dance Program and Children's Dance Theatre at the University of Utah for their 58th Annual Performance. In addition to writing, Judy specializes in school visits and writing workshops for students nationwide and is a frequent speaker for professional educational organizations.

The story is about loss and change in a family's life. When loss and change are introduced to children in a sensitive and nurturing way (through the eyes of Cora), the reader has the opportunity to start a conversation about how it's okay to feel sad and it's okay to feel angry when loss occurs. It's also okay to find meaning by taking whatever comforting action is possible within one's grasp. What a great way for readers to begin to appreciate the hardships of pioneers on the Oregon Trail. This is an amazing book!
