BookHounds Author Directory

Meet some of our favorite Minnesota children’s book authors in our BookHounds Author directory:

Belinda Jensen, Children’s Book Author & Meteorologist

Twin Cities, MN, USA
Details:

Meet Belinda Jensen and her Bel The Weather Girl books. I would be lying if I didn't admit that I was a little star-struck when I first met Belinda Jensen.  But she admits herself that she is a science nerd--and has always been one. As a meterologist, Belinda gets to meet with second-graders and has learned first hand about their anxiety over the weather.  This is where being a mom herself collides with being a science nerd. The Mayo Clinic has done research about how to help kids. Bel took that information from Mayo and applied it. She could do something to help kids. 

That's how Bel the Weather Girl was born.

Belinda Jensen was a guest of Bookhounds in September of 2016.

We love our wonderful community of local children's book authors in Minnesota. Minnesota kids books cover all types of books from fiction to nonfiction. There are books about penguins, books about the ocean and, of course, books about Minnesota. Whatever you are looking for, chances are we have something great coming out of our great state.

Historically, While we Minnesotan's have to share Laura Ingalls Wilder with several other states, we do get to claim Wanda Gag, author of Millions of Cats, and Maud Hart Lovelace, author of the Betsy-Tacy books and the inspiration for the Maud Hart Lovelace Awards.

Three Reasons to Add Books by Minnesota Children's Book Authors to Your Own Bookshelves:

Besides the fact that they are producing some very high quality books for kids, there are some great reasons to add these books to your own bookshelf:

  1. You can often get your books autographed at book releases and other author events.
  2. Sometimes these local book authors do school visits.
  3. If you like the hunt of collecting used books, I've had really good luck finding autographed copies of these books when hitting the thrift stores. It's always exciting to find a book by someone local, but even more so, when I open the cover and find an autograph.
