About Susan Sachs Levine

Always a lover of picture books, Susan Sachs Levine identified the need for books about major cities in her home state of Ohio when her children were young. Her first two books, Packard Takes Flight: A Bird’s-Eye View of Columbus, Ohio and Harriett’s Homecoming: A High- Flying Tour of Cincinnati, Ohio are based on the Peregrine Falcons who nest on top of the tall buildings in these cities.
Susan now lives in Naples, Florida, where she is enchanted by the wildlife, particularly the birds. She is a Florida Master Naturalist and is excited to share all she has learned with children through her recent new works. In Gilbert’s Migration Vacation: The Story of an Original Snowbird, set to release in spring 2023, children learn about Sanderlings as well as other shorebirds, and the amazing migrations they make between their breeding and wintering grounds.
In all her books, Susan blends her interest in wildlife with her imaginative storytelling to entertain and teach young children, while being a great resource for teachers and parents.
