When Emily was a little girl, she liked to read books far above her grade level. As a result, she collected a large vocabulary of words she could use and spell properly but couldn’t pronounce. Her favorite books were usually about stallions; black ones, golden ones, wild ones, and phantom ones. She has since expanded her reading tastes, but still holds a soft spot for any book featuring a rearing horse on the cover. Emily is a graphic designer and contributes to the All About Reading activity books.
