Brianna Caplan Sayres used to tell her second graders, “When I grow up, I’m going to be a writer.” “But you are grown up, Mrs. Sayres,” her students would protest. Well, Brianna is still not quite sure she’s grown up, but she has grown into a writer. Her debut picture book, Where Do Diggers Sleep at Night? has grown into a series of vehicle bedtime books. Brianna loves living in her hometown, Seattle, Washington, where she and her husband are kept busy by their two future astronauts.
Like many writers, Brianna loves to read. She loves to curl up with a good book. Brianna also loves to teach and is a proud graduate of Bank Street College of Education, where she served as an adjunct faculty member teaching others how to teach reading, writing and literacy.
