About the Author/Illustrator
Julie Olson started traveling across the country when she was only 9 months old and has yet to stop. Born right outside of the nation’s capital, Washington D.C., Julie was destined to love her country. At a young age, she moved to Middle America and promptly began exploring the woods with her 6 brothers and picking wild violets with her two sisters. Throughout her childhood, many hours were spent traveling with all 9 kids crammed in a van, learning, seeing, and experiencing the United States. Julie left the Midwest to attend college in the Rocky Mountains, earning a fine arts degree in Illustration. She began illustrating children’s books, raising a family of her own,and sharing her experiences with others. To date, she has been to 38 of the 50 United States and would love to mark the last 12 off her list. (You can help her out by having her come visit your school. She’d love to meet you.)
