About the Author
From an early age, Russian-born Esphyr Slobodkina was surrounded by parents and friends who were deeply interested in the arts. "Those who didn't practice," she says, "discussed art at great length." She recalls that fifteen to twenty people at the dinner table was not a party but a daily happening. Even during the Russian Revolution and before coming to live in the United States, she always found an inexhaustible supply of laughter in the "saga" of the family struggling for self-preservation.
At the age of 92, Esphyr's sense of fun and good humor still extends to family, friends, and art compositions. Although she continues to produce sculpture and collage, today Esphyr's primary focus is on overseeing the production of musical storybook cassettes of all twenty of her children's books.
Esphyr also recently designed a mini museum in Glen Head, Long Island, New York (through her Slobodkina Foundation), as a place where guests can visit and view more than 200 works of art, her handmade dolls and jewelry, as well as her complete collection of children's storybooks, including some of her original illustrations.
