Bill Harley

Bill Harley, a prolific author and performing artist, uses song and story to paint a vibrant picture of growing up, schooling and family life. A two-time Grammy award-winning artist and regular commentator for NPR's "All Things Considered," Bill's work affirms our commonality and reminds us to laugh out loud. In the car, the classroom, at home or on stage, "no one beats Harley for intelligent, polished children's entertainment – he's simply the best."  (Mothering Magazine)
