Ann Taylor was born in England. She is best known for her work on children’s poems and stories with her sister, Jane, author of such well known poems as “The Star” (more easily recognized as lyrics for the nursery rhyme, “Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star”). After several joint volumes, Taylor married and ceased publishing poetry for some time. Only in the late 1820’s did Taylor begin to publish her poetry again.
