book_cover.jpg gaudi coverHi!
My name is Rachel Rodriguez and I write books for kids. This site is for readers. Readers who want to learn more about me and my books. It's also for educators who seek information that might enhance the reading experience of their students.

What's New

My book BUILDING ON NATURE: THE LIFE OF ANTONI GAUDI, about the famed Spanish architect, is now in its 3rd printing! Booklist' starred review calls it "piercingly poetic...simply pure joy to look at." It has been printed in Korean and Japanese!

THROUGH GEORGIA'S EYES, my picture book about Georgia O'Keeffe, is now in its 14th printing! It's available in England and Kirkus' starred review calls it "breathtaking." Click on "Books" to learn more.

Finally, both books have been translated into Chinese for Asia. Click on "Links" for more information. Meantime, I am busy writing more stories...
