Bonny Becker

Bonny Becker is the author of, A Visitor for Bear which won the E.B. White Read Aloud Award. Her other books include: A Bedtime for Bear, Birthday for Bear, The Magical Ms. Plum and others. 

Bonny describes her dot, "I like to do mandalas. Nothing elaborate—just a circle with symmetrical lines and simple patterns inside. Sometimes I go more freehand. This dot is about the things I love in nature—water—ocean, rivers, rain—freshly plowed fields, plants, the seasons and above it all the sun. Mandalas like this are easy and fun. All you really need is a small plate to draw your circle, a ruler to mark out your lines and colored pencils or paints. Then you can draw in whatever you love."
