About Amy Krouse Rosenthal
Amy Krouse Rosenthal liked to make things.
Some things she made:
Connections with the universe.
Something out of nothing.
According to The New York Times, Amy's award-winning children's books "radiate fun the way tulips radiate spring: they are elegant and spirit-lifting."
Her 30+ books for children include UNI THE UNICORN, I WISH YOU MORE, EXCLAMATION MARK, LITTLE PEA, SPOON, CHOPSTICKS, DUCK!RABBIT!, PLANT A KISS, and DEAR GIRL, with more books still to come.
Amy’s alphabetized memoir ENCYCLOPEDIA OF AN ORDINARY LIFE was named one of Amazon’s top 10 memoirs of the decade.
Amy was a contributor to public radio, YouTube (THE BECKONING OF LOVELY, THE MONEY TREE) and TED (7 NOTES ON LIFE).
Her final essay, YOU MAY WANT TO MARRY MY HUSBAND, was published in the New York Times Modern Love column ten days before she died in March 2017. It immediately went viral, becoming one of the most-read essays to date.
Amy raised her three children with her husband, Jason, on a treelined street in Chicago. For more information about Amy’s life, work, and the Foundation formed in her memory, please see www.amykrouserosenthalfoundation.org.
