Peter H. Reynolds

FableVision Learning
Boston, MA
Creativity champion, Peter H. Reynolds, is a NY Times best-selling author/illustrator and founder of FableVision, an award-winning educational multi-media company co-located at the Boston Children’s Museum. Published in over 25 languages, Peter's books The Dot, Ish, Rose's Garden, I'm Here, So Few of Me, The North Star and Sky Color inspire children and “grown up children” with his messages about authentic learning, creativity, bravery, empathy, and courageous self-expression.  
Peter also illustrated the best selling Someday by Alison McGhee; Guyku by Bob Raczk;  Plant a Kiss by Amy Krouse Rosenthal; The Museum, You and Me, and I am Yoga with Susan Verde, and the Judy Moody series by Megan McDonald.
Peter H. Reynolds and Susan Verde welcomed the 2016 school year with a new collaboration called Water Princess.  It is based on supermodel Georgie Badiel’s childhood, a young girl dreams of bringing clean drinking water to her African village.  The 2017 school year will be greater with another collaboration call I am Peace, A Book of Mindfulness.                     
Peter’s latest book, Happy Dreamer, was just released by Scholastic Books.  Peter H. Reynolds brings us a universally poignant celebration of the colorful spectrum of what it means to dream and the many ways to find happy!  In Peter's signature voice and style, this empowering picture book reminds children of how much their dreams matter, and while life will have ups and downs, he enlists readers to stay true to who they are, to tap into their most creative inner selves, and to never ever forget to dream big!
Going Places is his first collaboration with his identical twin brother, Paul. It is a celebration of creative spirit, collaboration, and thinking - both figuratively and literally outside the box. In a new series, Full Steam Ahead, features Sydney and Simon, twin mice on a mission to save wilting flowers in their window box.  The young chapter book underscores how characters use STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math) to learn about the water cycle on earth, in their home, and ultimately, to rescue their flowers.  Go Green, following the STEAM theme is now available and To the Moon will be released in the summer of 2017.
Peter lives in Dedham, MA, where he founded The Blue Bunny, a family-owned and operated children’s book, toy, creativity store.

Much of Peter's spare time is spent giving back to the community ~ revitalizing the businesses and landscape in his beloved Dedham Square, supporting schools, caring for homeless children, promoting literacy and learning, and inspiring all of us to use our gifts to make the journey a meaningful one.

To that end, Peter and his twin brother Paul, launched the Reynolds Center for Teaching, Learning, and Creativity (TLC). The center is a not-for-profit organization that encourages creativity and innovation in teaching and learning. It is dedicated to ensuring that all learners develop the vision, confidence, knowledge and skills needed to move their own lives forward, and to use their talents, strengths and energy to move their communities and the world to a better place.
