ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Carol Zelaya is a former nurse, recently widowed, and mother of two grown children. She grew up in the Chicago area, where she eventually met and married her husband and where they raised a family. Having relocated to Oregon in 1996, Zelaya began her love affair with nature and its beautiful creatures. Inspired by her surroundings, she started taking pictures and writing. Writing poetry led to writing three children’s books, of course, in rhyme. Zelaya’s Emily the Chickadee books are the true story of the special bond between a tiny bird and a little girl and the true meaning of family.
Carol is now moving to the San Diego area to be near her children. You can visit her online at http://www.emilythechickadee.com/.
Read Emily Waits for Her Family and follow the true story of the special bond between a tiny bird and a little girl, from first meeting to leaving, from new life to old friends. This story is told in a timeless, three-part series, with an easy-reading rhyme, and is certain to delight and touch your heart.
WHAT THEY ARE SAYING ABOUT EMILY WAITS FOR HER FAMILY!
“While there are other authors known for their portrayals of nature and animals, they have not promoted the scientific observation techniques that are used and included in a chart at the end of this book.” – Jane Herbst, NYSUT teacher
“A delightful story for any child that enjoys wildlife.” – Catherine Allen, Amazon.com reviewer
“The story…is enjoyable and teaches at the same time.” – Tara’s View of the World
As I look closer, what do I see?
In the nest there seems to be,
The little bird named Emily,
And a big surprise of one, two, three!
Yes, three little eggs for me to see.
You’ll soon be a mommy Chickadee!

These books are extremely sweet. These will definitely be cherished by young and old who read them. The books teach children about birds while charming them with wonderful rhyming text and colorful illustrations. There are three books in the series and all follow the chickadee Emily.
