J is for Jefferson and S is for signatures in this illustrated children’s picture book that traces the events leading up to the Declaration of Independence and its subsequent profound impact. Unlike alphabet books that string together unrelated facts, this one actually tells the story of how our nation’s founding document came to be.
An avid reader since the age of five, Catherine Osornio never considered writing as a potential career until several years ago. While helping a friend develop her writing skills, Catherine was bit by the writing bug and hasn’t stopped since. Her work includes over 70 short stories for a private school’s early reader program, fiction and nonfiction stories and articles for Clubhouse Jr. Magazine, and numerous inspirational articles for a women’s newsletter. “The Declaration of Independence from A to Z” is her first published book.
Catherine is currently working on a middle grade mystery series and a young adult novel. She lives in Southern California with her husband and four children.
