She is a prolific, national award winning author and storyteller known for her rollicking verses, exuberant wordplay, and humour. She has represented Canada around the world and received numerous literary awards and honorary doctorates from Canadian universities. Sheree's books are timeless. I can recall sitting on the gymnasium floor with my grade two class and the children and teachers buzzing with excitement that Sheree Fitch had arrived to do a reading at the school. My memory of her from that time is the warm feeling of her enthusiasm and kindness and the connectedness she had with everyone in the room and her wild hair!
