More About Jean Marzollo & Walter Wick

Jean Marzollo Jean Marzollo has written over 100 books, including the award-winning I SPY series for children, written completely in rhythm and rhyme. She says, "Rhythm and rhyme are like music without the tune; they lure and excite the ear. Children love rhythm and rhyme, and so do I. Do you know that I SPY actually has the same rhythm as Old Mother Hubbard Went to the Cupboard - and also rap?"

Jean Marzollo was born and raised in Manchester, CT. She loved reading books and sewing her own clothes as she grew up. She is a graduate of Manchester High School (1960), the University of Connecticut (1964), and the Harvard Graduate School of Education (1965).

She was a high school English teacher in Arlington, MA (1965-66) and the assistant director of Harvard's Project Upward Bound (1967). In New York City, she worked on early childhood research projects for General Learning Corp. (1967-69) and was the Director of Publications for the National Commission on Resources for Youth (1970-71). For 20 years from 1972-1992, she was editor of Scholastic's Let's Find Out Magazine, working closely with the talented art director Carol Devine Carson. She has written books, such as The New Kindergarten, for teachers and parents, as well as articles for Parents Magazine, Redbook, and other parenting magazines.

Jean Marzollo is best known for her award-winning, best-selling I SPY series with the fantastic photographic illustrator Walter Wick. Among her other favorite children's books are: Pierre the Penguin, The Little Plant Doctor, Help Me Learn Addition, Help Me Learn Numbers 0-20, Soccer Sam, Mama Mama/Papa Papa; Close Your Eyes; Happy Birthday, Martin Luther King; and the Shanna Show books. After more than 20 years of writing children's books, she began to illustrate them, too. She has retold and illustrated five Bible stories and three Greek myths, as well as writing and illustrating two counting books for preschoolers: Ten Little Eggs and Ten Little Christmas Presents.

Jean Marzollo is also the author/illustrator of online interactive books for children, Monsters for Sale and Castle Crash featuring Teddy Bear and Greenie the Troll. Her website ( has many free stories, songs, and games for children to play on computers, SMART boards, and various handheld devices. She says,

"I love all aspects of creating books and ebooks for kids: writing, editing, working with illustrators or illustrating myself. I am always interested in testing my work with children ages 4-8 in classrooms to see if they 'get it.' If they don't, I fix it. Children are great editors. They teach me what works best for them and what doesn't."

Jean Marzollo is married to Claudio Marzollo, a retired sculptor who has co-authored the ebooks, as well as some of her children's science fiction and fantasy books. Their two grown sons, Dan Marzollo and Dave Marzollo, ghostwrite many of the I SPY books. They have also co-authored some of her sports books for kids. She resides in Upstate New York.

Jean Marzollo currently resides in Cold Spring, in the state of New York.

Reviews - What do customers think about I Spy Little Numbers?

love this book  Sep 12, 2007
I really like the way this book has text with pictures on one side, and then the I Spy pictures on the other side. It helps kids with the pre-reading skill of matching words with pictures. My son loves the rhymes and the pictures.
Light Rhymes & Bright Colors = Mighty Combinations !  Dec 31, 2006
"I SPY" inspires fun for all ages; this time around it will be the perfect gift for a little boy who has a new brother. He can "read" all kinds of stories about the brightly colored objects, and memorize the rhymes as well as help the baby learn numbers. Sharing is important for a boy with a dad in Iraq and a new baby demanding attention.

The "I SPY" books remind many mothers of the Girl Scouts' "Kim's Game" and the tradition of FUN & IMAGINATION lives on. The more fully & enthusiastically parents participate in their children's learning, the greater the benefits to the entire family. These books offer chances for all senses to be used. And the unexpected, unscripted sharings from children open the curtains for moms & dads on new perceptions of abilities & personalities.

What a pay-off! We can't afford for learning to wait for kindergarten years. Encourage kids to share their books whenever & however they can.
Great for detail-oriented kids and vocab building!  Nov 19, 2005
My two boys, ages 3 and 2, both pull this book off the shelf over and over. I use it to teach the younger one new vocabulary (both in English and Spanish) and the older one to continue to practice his numbers (also in both languages), as well as colors. It's a great addition to the workbook Flip Flop Spanish, and also just for fun.., my littlest, a one-year-old girl, even looks at the pages and will sit with the boys to watch them. They're sturdy pages, full of all KINDS of things. The kind of book you find something new each time you open it. It has little lists to find items as well.
One of the best books we own  Apr 16, 2004
My 15 month old son absolutely *loves* this book, and I do too. The pictures are very interesting with lots of easily identifiable items in them for kids to pick out. (He has learned quite a bit of vocabulary from this book and practiced words he already knows--ball, clown, train, etc.) One problem that I have found with a lot of books for babies and young children is that the rhyme schemes and rhythm of the text are often pretty wonky. Not so in this case. This book is beautifully written. The rhymes are fun and easy to read. Highly reccommended!!
Long shelf life  Mar 8, 2003
I have two boys, 15 months old and 3 1/2 years old, and both love this book. My 15-month old not only begs me to read it to him, but is starting to learn to identify numbers (and many other objects) from it. My 3 1/2-year-old likes it on a different level, to "spy" the objects. Highly recommended.
