Leslie Sills's most recent book Rags to Riches: A History of Girls' Clothing in America was reviewed by the New York Times Book Review and was the winner of the 2006 Oppenheim Toy Portfolio Award. Sills is a graduate of The School of the Museum of Fine Arts and a winner of numerous awards including a Fellowship in Crafts from the NEA (New England Foundation for the Arts, Massachusetts Cultural Council).

Sills has stated, "I am deeply committed to encouraging and supporting children's creative efforts. I want children to have role models, to see that they can express themselves even if obstacles seem to be in the way." Her compassion and empathy for children's lives are evident in her most recent faux naive paintings included in The Vissicitudes of Youth.
