About Caley Vickerman, The Haiku Mistress:
Actor and Educator, Caley Vickerman, discovered haiku in 6th grade and (despite a brief obsession with magnetic poetry in high school) they remain to this day a favorite method of expression; simple, precise and immeasurably powerful.
It became her fervent wish to create events that celebrated haiku (and humanity). Thus the Guerilla Haiku Movement was born! And the Haiku Mistress gratefully continues to celebrate!
About Mark Lerer, Illustrator and Cartoonist:
Mark Lerer is an illustrator who has studied at the New York Academy of Art and whose cartoons have appeared in the New York Post and on Facebook. His drawings have been exhibited at Nexus Gallery and New Century Artists. He lives in New York City.

“In the last 24 years I’ve spent much of my time in studying the astonishing frogs of Madagascar, a country that is extraordinarily rich in amphibian species (more than 290 currently known, and many other candidate species), but that is also also dramatically fragile and delicate. In all these years I visited many of the country rainforests, savannahs and deserts, searching for herps and for documenting their status. Strangely (surprisingly!!) enough, we did not detect (yet?) any extinct Malagasy frog, although this perception may be misleading: the high number of species still to be described clearly advocates for the former existence (and probable extinction) of unknown species.”

Firenze University Press Book Review: Frogs, Amphibians and Their Threatened Environment – Discovery and Expression Through Art – K-3
…In such a sense the book “built” (not only and not simply written) by Susan Newman is for me a real jewel. In many ways. This book is mainly destined to educators and provides a true roadmap to teach young readers and explorers the love for amphibians. Susan has coped her strong passion for frogs (she is the founder and the promoter of “Frogs Are Green”, a non profit organization created in 2009 to bring awareness to what’s happening on our planet, especially to the fact that frogs everywhere are disappearing: http://frogsaregreen.org/) with art. In such a way the aim of the organisation is to give kids the opportunity to learn about the environment, frogs and other amphibians, and to express themselves through art. In this way Susan’s love for science has been put together with the great and somehow innate interest that children (in this case up to the 3rd grade) have for frogs and drawings…

In 2015, Susan published her first book “Frogs, Amphibians and Their Threatened Environment, Discovery and Expression through Art” Children in K-3 are introduced to frogs, amphibians and the world that surrounds them. (See more about amphibian education.)
In her early career, Susan worked as an art director and graphic designer for various book publishing companies in New York City including Penguin and Macmillan. She has designed 100s of book covers in most genres. Her book design work is represented in the permanent collection of the Library of Congress in Washington, DC.
I have written a 6-week curriculum: Frogs, Amphibians and Their Threatened Environment: Discovery and Expression Through Art – K-3, which is now available on Amazon and Createspace as a paperback. The Kindle and iPad version are forthcoming. To learn more about this combined study of frog, amphibian science and art together, visit: Frogs Are Green – Amphibian Art Curriculum, or purchase it on Amazon here: Frog Curriculum Book
Testimonial for “Frogs, Amphibians and Their Threatened Environment”:
Susan Newman’s new curriculum Frogs, Amphibians and Their Threatened Environment: Discovery and Expression through Art, K-3 (including many beautiful photos of frogs) provides a new way for children to learn about amphibians and express appreciation of this “living art” through their own artistic work. This curriculum addresses the need for biology and art to not always be taught as separate subjects. This interdisciplinary approach may foster greater understanding of biological concepts and the opportunity to develop a more personal meaning with the natural world through observation and interpretation.
