Recipient Hayley Rose grew up in the beach side town of Pacific Palisades, California, to a family of visual artists. In 1994, after a family reunion, she was inspired to write a children’s book. Hayley’s mother would often ask her what she wanted to be when she grew up, so Hayley decided to start her series of “Fifo” books with that very question. Her first book, Fifo “When I Grow Up” was published in 2002. Her love of travel inspired her second book in the Fifo series, Fifo “50 States,” published in 2010.Buy It Now!
