Aileen Lucia Fisher (September 9, 1906 – December 2, 2002) was an American writer of more than a hundred children’s books, including poetry, picture books in verse, prose about nature and America, biographies, Bible themed books, plays, and articles for magazines and journals. Her poems have been anthologized many times and are frequently used in textbooks. In 1978 she was awarded the second National Council of Teachers of English Award for Excellence in Poetry for Children. Born in Michigan, Fisher moved to Colorado as an adult and lived here for the rest of her life.
The Boulder Library Foundation is the beneficiary of Aileen Fisher’s copyrights and royalties. Her generous bequest has been an amazing gift for the Foundation.

“Poetry is a rhythmical piece of writing that leaves the reader feeling that life is a little richer than before, a little more full of wonder, beauty, or just plain delight.”
