During my research, I learned that Lois Ehlert has illustrated books for other authors as well as writing and illustrating her own books. Under the heading of books written by Lois Ehlert, I have included my favorites. I have also included some of the more recent books she illustrated for other authors in this selected bibliography. In addition, I have included two bilingual books she wrote, and an autobiography written for children.
