Rita Goldner has a passion for the natural world, sustainability and environmental responsibility. This agenda, coupled with a love of drawing and writing, made picture book writing/illustrating a great fit for her. Through written word and illustrations Rita shows her love of nature, endangered animals in their habitats, and global ecology. Her story telling style, with colorful, whimsical pictures and lively action-packed plots, make learning fun. She hopes that bringing awareness of the environment’s importance will ensure that her readers will join the fight to preserve all this when they grow up.
