Rae jokingly contends that she has a “writing disease.” At the completion of each new book, she typically decides she doesn’t have another one in her. But as of 2019, she has authored 20 books and is working on her 21st, a follow-up to the popular What If Everybody Understood Child Development?, to be titled What If We Taught the Way Children Learn?
In addition to writing books, Rae is a frequent blogger who uses the medium to educate and advocate. She is the lyricist for the original songs in the Moving & Learning Series and a fan of piggyback songs, which are found in many of her activity books.
Rae has also contributed to numerous publications, including George Morrison’s Fundamentals of Early Childhood Education, and Beginnings and Beyond: Foundations in Early Childhood Education by Ann Gordon and Kate Brown. She has been a columnist for Young Children, Education.com, and Teaching Elementary Physical Education, and has blogged for Huffington Post Education. Her work appeared in numerous other print and online publications, including Exchange Magazine and Parent Toolkit, a parent resource produced by NBC News Learn.
