Creativity champ, Peter H. Reynolds is a NY Times best-selling author/illustrator and founder of FableVision, an award-winning educational multi-media company co-located at the Boston Children’s Museum. Published in over 20 languages, Peter's books The Dot, Ish, Sky Color, Rose's Garden, I'm Here, So Few of Me and The North Star inspire children and “grown up children” with his messages about authentic learning, creativity, bravery, empathy, and courageous self-expression. Peter also illustrated the best selling Someday by Alison McGhee, Guyku by Bob Raczka, Plant a Kiss by Amy Krouse Rosenthal, and the Judy Moody series by Megan McDonald, and The Museum by Susan Verde.
Peter lives in Dedham, MA, where he founded The Blue Bunny, a family-owned and operated children’s book, toy, and creativity store. Much of Peter's spare time is spent giving back to the community ~ revitalizing the businesses and landscape in his beloved Dedham Square, supporting schools, caring for homeless children, promoting literacy and learning, and inspiring all of us to use our gifts to make the journey a meaningful one.
To that end, Peter and his twin brother Paul, recently launched the Reynolds Center for Teaching, Learning, and Creativity (TLC). The center is a not-for-profit organization that encourages creativity and innovation in teaching and learning. It is dedicated to ensuring that all learners develop the vision, confidence, knowledge and skills needed to move their own lives forward, and to use their talents, strengths and energy to move their communities and the world to a better place.
