Author and Illustrator Henry Cole
Henry Cole is a self-taught artist who grew up on a farm in Purcallville, Virginia. He’s always been interested in art and science, and he went to Virginia Tech to study forestry. Henry’s detailed drawings were helped and inspired by the close observation of nature that his educational field called for. He taught elementary level science classes as well as trying other jobs, including magazine illustration. His books are wonderful for teaching student readers lessons of language and life, but they are never heavy handed with their lesson. They always keep the kids very entertained, laughing, and endlessly rewarded. As a former educator, Henry focuses on engaging children in during his school visits to teach them lessons, as in his books.
