Author and Illustrator of the children’s picture book, WORDS
Lora lives in the vibrant city of Toronto, Canada. When she is not busy running around town with her two children, she can be found running around the school with her students (when the principal is not looking, of course). Her love for writing and art began at a very young age and followed her into the classroom. Working with children for the past eighteen years has given her the perfect opportunity to nourish her passion for words and craft them into whimsical poems and stories. She enjoys sharing her creations with students, friends, colleagues, and online readers. Her writing haven has become her blog, Words on a Limb, where she combines the rigor of language with the freedom of art to create a colorful pallet of literary expression. Visit her at lorarozler.com for more information and coming events.
“Lora’s ability to explain the world to bright young minds using
language and imagery they can relate to is a true gift.”
WORDS – released July 5, 2015
In this emotional and highly visual picture book, a lonely letter sets off on a journey to find meaning. As it encounters various letter combinations, it is confronted by two distinct paths and must make an important choice. Readers of all ages will be captivated by this simple, yet high concept, story that explores universal themes of discovery, relationships and the need to belong, with an underlying message about bullying. Both timeless and original, WORDS is an evocative tale about how letters become words and words create meaning – meaning which could ultimately build or destroy.
“A compelling story-line, simple yet poignant illustrations, engaging language, a great read-aloud that offers many opportunities for reflection and discussion with children.”
“A heart-warming story with a clever, powerful message about anti-bullying. An absolute must-have for every parent and educator.”
