About the Author

Ruth Sibert

Ruth Siburt lives in Central Illinois where she spoils her beautiful, smart, loving grandchildren. She enjoys reading and writing stories, poetry and sometimes her own songs.  She is a fan of children, cats, dogs, and birds. (Please don’t hold the cat thing against her.)

She learned storytelling two ways: through reading books and listening to her mom, Beulah. At our Sunday dinner table, Beulah told true stories from her childhood. She remembered what life was like living with relatives who gave her temporary homes. Ruth learned how stories come to life by paying attention to special moments. She works hard to remember them so she can share her stories with others.

Young Ruth dreamed of becoming a ballerina. Her parents decided to give her piano lessons instead. It turns out that was a smart choice. Ruth’s fingers are much nimbler than her toes. She discovered in her piano lessons a sweet pairing of music and words. This is a good thing to know. She hopes her readers enjoy the wedding of music and story in Spoon Song.
