Bob Raczka

Robert and his wife, Amy, reside in Glen Ellyn, Illinois. Robert, Carl, and Emma are their three children, and Rufus is their dog. They're all Cubs fanatics. As a kid, Bob enjoyed drawing dinosaurs, vehicles, and planes. He also spent a lot of time creating model rockets and paper airplanes. Bob studied art in college, which he used while creating his Bob Raczka's Art Adventures series of art appreciation books.

He also studied advertising, which he has worked in for 30 years as a creative field. Bob found how much he appreciated poetry a few years ago. He didn't take long to start writing his own. Bob has always enjoyed toying with words. If he could only give today's kids one lesson, it would be to Create stuff!
