Campbell creates picture books with facts and photographs. Campbell’s latest book, Mysterious Patterns: Finding Fractals in Nature (Boyds Mills Press, 2014), is her second book that explains an interesting mathematical pattern and explores the ways it shows up in nature. It follows Growing Patterns: Fibonacci Numbers in Nature (Boyds Mills Press, 2010). Her first book, Wolfsnail: A Backyard Predator (Boyds Mills Press, 2008), tells the story of a snail that eats other snails and slugs. Kids, teachers, librarians, parents, and grandparents have embraced both books for their simple, compelling texts and stunning up-close photographs. All three are ALSC Notable Children’s Books; Mysterious Patterns is a Cook Prize Honor Book; and Wolfsnail is a Theodor Seuss Geisel Honor Book. In addition to creating books, Campbell also teaches. She conducts short-term arts integrated residencies featuring photography in schools, presents professional development for teachers and librarians who want to infuse their lessons with nature, photography, and book-making, and teaches nonfiction writing and photography to other writers.
