Sarah C. Campbell

I create picture books with facts and photographs. I write about interesting things I see around me in nature.

My latest book, Growing Patterns: Fibonacci Numbers in Nature, explains a simple number pattern and explores the ways it shows up in nature. My first book, Wolfsnail: A Backyard Predator, tells the story of a snail that eats other snails and slugs.

Kids, teachers, librarians, parents, and grandparents have embraced both books for their simple, compelling texts and stunning up-close photographs. Both are ALSC Notable Children's Books, and Wolfsnail is a Theodor Seuss Geisel Honor Book.

In addition to creating books, I also teach. I conduct short-term arts integrated residencies featuring photography in elementary schools, present professional development for teachers and librarians who want to infuse their lessons with nature, photography, and book-making, and teach nonfiction writing and photography to other writers.

Before I began writing books, I covered politics, business, government, and courts for two daily newspapers. I taught journalism. I wrote annual reports and other public relations pieces. I created a grant-funded program at my kids' elementary school to bring artists into the classroom.
