Shirley  Parenteau
Parenteau, Shirley: - Shirley Parenteau is the author of many books for young people, including the picture books Bears on Chairs, Bears in Beds, and Bears in the Bath. About this book, she says, My granddaughter's participation in Hinamatsuri in Japan led me to research the Girls' Day festival online. One link took me to the Friendship Dolls Project, a story I immediately wanted to share through the eyes of a girl taking part. Shirley Parenteau lives with her husband in Elk Grove, California.
