Jeanne Bendick

Jeanne Bendick

Jeanne Bendick was born February 25, 1919, in New York City. When she was growing up, her grandfather taught her how to draw. He always took her to the American Museum of Natural History in New York to see the different kinds of art.

In her books, Jeanne Bendick likes to make her drawings very simple. In many of her books, she helps her readers see how science is a part of everyday life. With her words and pictures, she takes things that are complicated and makes them easy to understand.

Jeanne Bendick has written over 100 books! She has also written filmstrips and television scripts.

"When I draw and when I write, I try to look at the world in the children's way and in my way."

"If I were a fairy godmother, my gift to every child would be curiosity."

Mrs. Bendick passed away on Friday, March 14, 2014 in Guilford, Connecticut. She is survived by a son, Robert Bendick Jr. of Winter Park Florida; a daughter, Karen Watson of Lexington, Massachusetts; five grandchildren and five great-grandchildren.
