Designed to stimulate creativity and encourage problem solving and critical thinking, the books help children draw their own pictures as well as their own conclusions about life. She also wrote Please Touch® (Simon & Schuster) which teaches parents and educators how to stimulate creativity through movement, music, art and play. Young at Art® (Henry Holt) is a comprehensive text about the value and significance of early childhood art. That book clearly demonstrates the important link between early scribbles and later literacy. In 2008 Susan received the highly competitive 2008 Connecticut Art Education Association Award, Outstanding Elementary Art Educator, for significant contributions to the field of art education. The author teaches elementary school art in Greenwich, Connecticut, where she won the Distinguished Teacher Award. She shares her innovative teaching ideas in workshops for parents and teachers in schools and universities all over the country. Susan’s Young at Art® curriculum for preschool and kindergarten art was awarded Connecticut's Celebration of Excellence for Creativity in the Classroom and was presented with Hofstra University’s George M. Estabrook Award.
