Margaret E. Hyde was originally born and raised in Memphis, Tennessee. Inspired by her daughter Spencer, Mrs. Hyde formed Budding Artists, Inc., in 1994 and created the Great Art for Kids series. In her own words, “My daughter's love of art and my belief in the importance of art in the lives of children inspired me to create a company and a series of books.”
The Great Art for Kids series: Mrs. Hyde presents a series that contains famous paintings like Picasso's Woman's Head, Van Gogh's The Starry Night, Cassatt's The Bath, Matisse's Christmas Eve, Renoir's Two Girls Reading, and Monet's Waterlilies and Japanese Bridge. These durable board books are designed to introduce young children to the great painters as an alternative to having expensive coffee-table books drooled on.
DreddieLocks & the Three Slugs: Inspired by her walks with her children through the redwoods, this children's book by Margaret E. Hyde is vibrantly illustrated. The tale depicts the sticky situation an ant can get into when he enters the home of three banana slugs. It is a fun re-creation of the classic children's story Goldilocks and the Three Bears.
Margaret E. Hyde lives with her husband and three children in Santa Monica, California.
