Dori Chaconas was born in Milwaukee, Wisconsin in 1938. The second child in a family of seven, Dori fell into the role of storyteller, nursery rhyme singer, and general entertainer for her siblings. She claims she learned about story pacing early. If the story action lagged, her fidgety audience would either scatter or start a poking war.
She has been married to Nick, her high school sweetheart, for 44 years. Everyone says the romance will last. They raised four daughters, and are now enjoying three grandsons—especially Grandpa, having been outnumbered by women all those years.
When their daughters were young, Dori wrote for them. She published three picture books and more than fifty stories in children's magazines. In the 70's, her interest turned to yarn embroidery design and she sold designs to major needlework companies and national magazines.
In 1997, Dori started writing stories again, partly to keep her grandsons from fidgeting or starting poking wars. Her stories reflect the warmth of family life. Dori gives credit to her parents for giving her a strong sense of family, and to her children and grandchildren for keeping it alive.From School Library Journal:
reSchool-K-A charming counting book that will appeal especially to the read-aloud set. As a little mouse searches for a new shelter, he visits nine woodland families and tries living in their various homes. Finding each one unsatisfactory (the moles' "diet was wormish,/And that made Mouse squirmish"), he realizes that his own home is just right after all. The text has a comforting cadence that is maintained throughout the book. Readers are introduced to one mouse on the first page, two moles on the second, three meadow frogs on the third, and so on up to 10 opossums. Pham's watercolor-and-gouache illustrations are printed on Arches Cold Press paper and do an excellent job of expressing the adorable mouse's emotions at each home he visits. The spreads each consist of a full-sized color illustration facing easy-to-read text fitted neatly around a smaller, complementary painting depicting the mouse's discomfort. Each text page begins with a number spelled out in colored letters in a larger font. As the story comes to a close, the mouse passes each of the nine other sleeping families on his way back home. Children will delight in searching them out, and will come away from the story with the subtle message that whether it's a tree, hole, or house, there's no place like home.
