Jone's love of non-fiction picture books began early in life. She was three years old when she proudly showed her mother's illustrated nurse textbooks to her grandmother to explain where babies really come from. She went on to number her books in her personal library and participated in every summer library program possible, foreshadowing her career as an elementary library media specialist.
Jone drove her parents crazy by reading the encyclopedias and then reporting symptoms of potential diseases to them.
Jone loves nonfiction picture books and poetry books. Today she regularly participates in Non-fiction Monday and Poetry Friday on her blog Check It Out.
