My son is a reader. He loves to visit our secondhand bookshop to get new books, he reads on his own all the time and he tells me that his current chapter books are too easy. (Am I bragging a little here? Yes.)…

3 Facts About Writing Picture Books

Years ago, before I wrote my first picture book, I thought that picture books were really easy to write.  I figured, well, they are short and how hard can it be to write a short book?

VIDEO: Best Books for Babies and Toddlers

Dear Diary,

As a child, you couldn't catch me without a book in my hand. My idea of fun was spending a Saturday at the library, checking out every hardcover I could carry. I would read to anyone who would listen, including my Cabbage Patch Kids lined up on my bed. I knew the mailman by name. I sat by the door waiting for him to deliver my monthly subscription of Highlights magazine. After I finished a chapter, I would write my own stories in a notebook. But as time passed and as I…
