Ramona Winner is an author of several multicultural books for children. Her first book was published in Sept of 1996. Ramona thoroughly researches her stories by spending time at local elementary schools and around children. Her books share a common thread—multicultural education. Ramona was raised in an environment where it was a disadvantage to be Hispanic and personally experienced many prejudices. She has made it her mission to teach children to respect and honor each other’s differences. Her latest children’s book, The Wooden Bowl, teaches children (and adults), to honor elders and to treat them with respect.
