Margarete Rougier Children's Author
Margarete Rougier was born and raised in Toronto, Canada. She is a full time elementary school teacher by day, and an aspiring children's book author by night. "Nelle and Alice: The Garden Crawler" is her debut children's book series inspired by early memories shared with her younger sister Melissa.
The girls loved the book. It is so important for them to see little girls that resemble them. They understand that representation matters. They were very excited to know that Nelle and Alice are real people that are biracial too. They are going to find time to write their own story as you mentioned they could do in the back of the book.Amy W. (mother of two)
People who are just learning English would like it because people like rhyming.Briana, age 9
It is really colorful and the colors make it interesting, and the details make it fun to read.Gobby, age 9
My purpose in life is to teach, to inspire, to educate, and to be a messenger to kids that will one day grow up to be adults with kids themselves, and write about it. It’s the legacy I'll leave behind.
