About the Authors-
Heather Patterson is the author of Thanks for Thanksgiving and co-author (with her daughter, Joanna Rice) of Pioneer Christmas Crafts. She is a former teacher and still likes teaching kids about our rich Canadian heritage. Heather has loved stories and pictures from the time her mother first read to her. Since then, she has chosen various careers — teacher, mother, author and children's book editor — that allow her to indulge her love of picture books.
Joanna Rice studied history and art history at university and volunteered at Colborne Lodge in Toronto's High Park, helping to show kids what life was like in pioneer times.
