Leslie Patricelli lives in Seattle, Washington, with her husband, their two children, and two kitties. She sketched out her first children's book, YUMMY YUCKY, when her then one-year-old son was putting everything in his mouth. "After hearing myself say 'yucky!' or 'yummy!' for months on end, this book seemed to write itself," she says. "Talking to and watching my young children all day gave me a voice and inspiration for these books. I write down what I say to them and what they say to me."
Leslie Patricelli currently resides in Seattle, in the state of Washington.

Perfect for teaching toddlers the concept of volume (sound) Sep 25, 2006
The illustrations in this board book are perfect for the descriptive short phrases. Our 2-year old toddler requests this book before his naptime ('silencio') and both whispers and shouts where appropriate as I am reading. He mastered the concept of volume in sound as a result of this book, and it's really cute to see him put his finger to his lip to whisper 'shh' when he sees the 'silencio' pages. I highly recommend this book.
