Short biography
An American children's author, translator and educator, Anne Emilie Poulsson was born in Cedar Grove, New Jersey in 1853, the daughter of Norwegian immigrant Halvor Poulsson and Ruth Anne Poulsson (née Mitchell), a woman of English ancestry. Sick for much of her childhood, she learned to read at home, eventually going on to public high school at the age of twelve. After losing her eyesight, she was educated at The Perkins School for the Blind, where she learned braille.

Poulsson taught and lectured in Boston, often speaking about parenting and educational issues. She was an advocate of the educational reformer Friedrich Fröbel, and his idea of the kindergarten. She wrote children's books, and together with her elder sister, Laura E. Poulsson, translated children's stories from Scandinavia. (source: Wikipedia)
