Happy Birthday Jean Marzollo- June 24

Last month when we celebrated Margaret Wise Brown's birthday we learned that the time she spent at the Bank Street College of Education played a significant role in molding her into legendary author. The influence of Bank Street comes back around this month as we celebrate Jean Marzollo's birthday. Many of you know her as the writer of the riddles and rhymes for the I Spy Series.

Jean Marzollo became the editor of the Scholastic Magazine Let's Find Out in 1971. Her educational advisor at Scholastic was Dorothy Cohen who was a classmate of Margaret Wise Brown at Bank Street College of Education. Just like Wise Brown, Cohen was directly influenced by the school's founder, Lucy Mitchell. Jean Marzollo credits Lucy Mitchell, Margaret Wise Brown, and Dorothy Cohen with influencing her as a writer. The relationships she made during her 20 years at Scholastic helped mold Marzollo into an author of over 100 children's books.
