Sharon Crocilla is a retired art teacher having taught for 30 years with the Palm Beach County, Florida School District. She began developing her artistic abilities in her very early years and received her BFA from Northern Illinois University. Her first granddaughter’s birth inspired her to write and illustrate a special children’s book just for her. This labor of love turned into a year-long project with a big payoff – her granddaughter loves it and wants to read it over and over. Her newborn grandson provides further inspiration to share her love of art and literature.
Sharon’s hope is that her book, ABCs in Action, will also be a favorite of parents because of its many educational components including vocabulary building, alliteration, and alphabet sequence as well as object identification.
