About the author (1999)

Nancy White Carlstrom started writing when she was seven years old and has been writing ever since. She says, "I write when I am happy and when I am sad, and especially when I celebrate God s creation. When you read This Is the Day, I hope it will cause you to look at your world and be surprised by wonder every day of the week.

Bruce Degen has illustrated all the Jesse Bear books. He is the author and illustrator of "Jamberry, " and the illustrator of the acclaimed Magic School Bus series. He has taught courses on art and the writing and illustrating of children's books to children and adults. Mr. Degen, his wife, and their two sons, Benjamin and Alexander, live in Connecticut in a renovated farmhouse with ducks on the pond, bats in the barn, and a family tree that Jesse Bear himself would love to climb.
