About Author:

Stephanie Spinner Jim Eldridge Nancy Harrison

I was born in Davenport, Iowa, and grew up in Rockaway Beach, New York I read straight through my childhood, with breaks for food, sleep, and the bathroom I went to college in Bennington, Vermont, moved to New York City, and took a job in publishing so I could get paid for reading I read so much bad fiction that I needed a break, so I moved to London, and from there I traveled to Morocco, Iran, Afghanistan, Pakistan India, Nepal, and Ceylon I came back to America, wandered around some to Mexico, Guatemala, and Belize and on returning to New York decided to study Tibetan Buddhist painting called thangka painting in Boulder, Colorado.I painted thangkas for many years Each one took anywhere from several weeks to a few months to complete, and at long last I understood that this was not the ideal way for me to make a living Only a few hundred Americans collected thangkas, and they wanted old ones, painted by Tibetan monks It was time to make a change.So I took another publishing job, this time in children s books I found that I liked children s books a lot, and before long, I became an editor.Years passed I was encouraged to write I scoffed at the idea that I had anything to write about I edited some wonderfully talented authors Virginia Hamilton, Philip Isaacson, Clyde Robert Bulla, Gloria Whelan, Robin McKinley, Joan Vinge, Garth Nix, and Chris Lynch, among others with great enjoyment Writing seemed like torture by comparison.Then, to my amazement, I found myself writing a book and having a good time simultaneously The book was ALIENS FOR BREAKFAST, and I enjoyed writing it because my co author was Jonathan Etra Jon who died of heart disease in 1990 was a close friend with a wild sense of humor, and collaborating with him changed my opinion of writing forever After ALIENS FOR BREAKFAST, and ALIENS FOR LUNCH, which we also co wrote, I began to think that writing could be interesting fun.And now that I ve been doing it full time for than ten years, I can tell you why I like it better than a job First, I can work in my bathrobe To the FedEx man and the UPS man, I am the woman in the plaid flannel robe Second, I can eat when I m hungry, choose when to take phone calls, and walk my dogs any time Third, the only meetings I have and they re short are with the dry cleaner and the post office ladies Fourth, I can read whatever I please I may tell people I m doing research when I read about horse trekking, or hunting in ancient Greece, or 16 ways to better compost, but the truth is, I m not doing research, I m having a good time Which I think is still allowed.



Comments Who Was Sitting Bull?

  • Felipe Alfaro

    Even though it's a kid's book, it still tears me up how the wasi'chu "the ones who take the fat" or "greedy people" forced native peoples out of their lands by breaking treaties, massacring the buffalo, building railroads through their lands, starving them, threatening them with further starvation and violence, pitting them against each other, massacring them, forcing them onto reservations and finally assassinating one of their greatest leaders on groundless rumors of an uprising (which conside [...]

    The book "Who Was Sitting Bull?" by Stephanie Spinner is a very great biography about Sitting Bull. Sitting Bull was a very kind man, and he rose to power very quickly because of that. He was also very respectful, even when he was a little boy. In the beginning of the book, it states some of the things that he did to be kind and respectful. He was a terrific fighter too. Overall, this was a great book.I enjoyed this book a lot. It had lots of detail, good sentence fluency, etc. It was packed wit [...]

    Again, it is about a 100 page biography written for children. It is great to read the story of his life to get a quick perspective. It fueled my curiosity to learn more about Sitting Bull and other Native Americans who resisted the U.S. Government.

    I thought this book was very good. Sitting bull started at a young age hunting buffalo. Is real name when he was a kid was slow. Sow went buffalo hunting with is friends and he killed small buffalo. When he was 10 or 11 he threw a spear at a crow which is a bad guy to the Indians. After that his father named him sitting bull. When he would kill buffalo instead of keeping it for himself he would give the meat to the poor Indians. He earned allot of respect for doing that every time he killed a bu [...]

    Sitting Bull, by Stephanie Spinner, was guaranteed to be a leader when he was older. It was not common for him to make mistakes. They called him slow when he was younger because he would do everything slowly. As he got older, he got a bow and arrow. The first animal he killed was a buffalo. He gave it to a family that did not have that much food. At age 12 he received an honor hat. Then he met the whites and he did not like them. He thought they were fools. Eventually, the whites fought a war wi [...]

    I really enjoy these short "Who Was" books, and I think kids will just eat them up. They are short but informative, and easy to read. This one on Sitting Bull was actually one I liked even more than some, but just because the content was interesting to me. That's the good thing about these books-- there's one for everyone.

    The book I read was Who Was Sitting Bull. The author of this book is Stephanie Spinner. This book gives good information on the topic which is Sitting Bull. During the book Sitting Bull got many different nicknames until he got one that was permanent. As his name is Sitting Bull he likes to sit and wait for the right opportunity to strike.I feel like the book gives good information and is a great book to read but I feel that the book could improve in some spots. During the book there was many di [...]

    You really need to study about American's Indian War first if you want to read this book, because 60% of this book contains information about the Indian War. In this book, we can see that Sitting Bull really cares for his people.

    Paired with:Marshall, J. (2015). In the footsteps of Crazy Horse. New York, NY: Amulet Books. Rationale:At first glance, these books don't seem very related. They are both about well know Native leaders, but that seems like all. However, once you dive into them, you find out they are both from the same tribe and fought for many of the same things. By having 2 books about similar topics, but not the same person, students are exposed to multiple perspectives, not just a single story. The non-ficti [...]
