Biographical Sketch

Edith Thacher Hurd was born September 14, 1910 in Kansas City, Missouri. She graduated from Radcliffe College in 1933 and attended the Bank Street College of Education in 1934. As a member of the Writer's Laboratory at the Bank Street College, she met a number of other aspiring writers who would become well-known as children's author's including her future collaborator Margaret Wise Brown. Many of the members of the Writer's Laboratory believed that books for the young child should focus on their emotions and concerns and have a "child-oriented point of view." Edith Thacher Hurd shares these beliefs and holds that one should write about the "stuff of children's imagination and play." In 1938, she published her first book for children Hurry, Hurry ; later reissued for the "I can read" series with illustrations by her husband, Clement Hurd, in 1960. During the next decade, Edith Thacher Hurd collaborated with Margaret Wise Brown on several books which were well-received by children and critics. Edith Thacher Hurd also had a long and prolific partnership with her husband. The Hurds produced a number of books between the 1940s-1980 many of which dealt with nature and animals, including their "Mother Animal" series, as well as a number of picture books. The Hurds also collaborated with their son, the children's author Thacher Hurd, on Little Dog Dreaming in 1967. Throughout her long career, Edith Thacher Hurd has written a wide range of books for children that regardless of topic or theme seek to appeal to their concerns and imagination.
