Bob Kann

Author Biography

Bob Kann is a storyteller/juggler/magician, an author of six children's books, and a professor of education. As an entertainer, he has performed throughout the United States since 1982. He also works as a consultant for universities, social service agencies, corporations, and other organizations on topics related to humor, reading, motivation, diversity, creativity, and team building.

A Recipe for Success: Lizzie Kander and Her Cookbook (2006), Kann's first book for the Badger Biographies series, tells how Lizzie Kander taught immigrant Jewish girls how to cook nutritious meals in early 1900s Milwaukee. Her work helped the girls make better lives for themselves and their families. Kann's other books include Belle and Bob La Follette: Partners in Politics (2008), Frank Lloyd Wright and His New American Architecture (2010), and Cordelia Harvey: Civil War Angel (2011).

When he isn't writing, juggling, or consulting, Bob usually can be found reading a book on levitation. He can't put it down.
