Beatrice Schenk de Regniers

Beatrice Schenk de Regniers wrote many well-loved children's books, such as "What Can You Do With A Shoe?" and the Caldecott-winning "May I Bring a Friend?" Ms. de Regniers was once a social worker, a dancer, and the founder of a children's book club, but her true passion was writing children's books. She died in 2000.
