Welcome to Michelle Eastman Books. I am a teacher and mom who is passionate about literacy and the issues affecting our children. My award-winning books take a lighthearted look at peer relationships and the compelling desire kids have to fit-in. The stories validate the need kids feel for acceptance, while imparting a subtle message about the joy that can come from embracing one's individuality. The lively, rhyming stanzas and vivid illustrations appeal to boys and girls alike. Click here to see how a picture book is made. I sign and ship all books FREE!
