Happy St. Patrick's Day! I am celebrating with Pulitzer Prize winner Jane Smiley. She dropped by to chat with me about Twenty Yawns, Lauren Castillo, school libraries, and picture books. I wrote the words in green, and she wrote the words in black. Thank you, Jane!
I wrote Twenty Yawns when I couldn't sleep.
Lucy and her family all have good intentions.
Lauren Castillo’s illustrations are colorful, cheerful, and amusing, loved especially by me.
Picture books are always surprising to the author of the text.
Reading is the best way to learn lots of things, because reading invites the reader to imagine, and therefore to develop an inner life.
Look for Twenty Yawns on April 1.
