CLiF would like to introduce or re-introduce you to Natalie Kinsey-Warnock of Glover, VT. Many of Natalie’s book borrow from her life in Vermont’s Northeast Kingdom. She describes herself: “I am an athlete, naturalist, artist and writer…I am an outdoorswoman, enjoying hiking astronomy, bird watching, and creating watercolor and pastel paintings of wildflowers, birds, and landscapes. I love animals and have rescued most of my pets…I love history, especially of the Civil War. I am learning to play the bagpipes and fiddle.”

Watch Natalie’s presentation here.

Things to think about:

  • Natalie believes that every family has stories too good to be forgotten. How many of your books are true? Do you embellish the stories?
  • You write chapter and picture books. How do you decide which format to use for each story?
  • What is your favorite historic time period?
  • What interests you about historic artifacts?

Here are a few ways to get to know Natalie’s work better:

CLiF has created literacy activities for students of all ages here. Here are some that would go nicely with Natalie’s work:
