As a child, De Las Casas lived in the Philippines, Hawaii, Spain and traveled across Europe and the United States. A Filipina-American, she is a champion for literacy and often tours in Asia promoting literacy. She is founder of the international initiative, Picture Book Month, which celebrates picture books during the month of November. Picture Book Month was featured in Life Lift, The Oprah blog, among other media.

De Las Casas is the author of nine children’s picture books published by Pelican Publishing  including the best-selling The Cajun Cornbread Boy and  There’s A Dragon in the Library. Her new fall 2012 title is Beware, Beware of the Big Bad Bear. She has ten award-winning professional books for educators and librarians published by Libraries Unlimited including the best-selling Handmade Tales: Stories to Make and Take, Scared Silly: 25 Tales to Tickle and Thrill, and Tales from the 7,000 Isles: Filipino Folk Stories.

With the release of a brand new iPhone/iPad app called “Rockin’ Three Billy Goats” and more books on the way, Dianne de Las Casas shows no signs of slowing down. De Las Casas says, “I am so humbled to have a listing in the Great Lives in History series. It feels like a lifetime achievement honor but my life is not over. I still have so much more to do!”
