I was delighted to speak about my expereince writing and illustrating How to Say Hello to a Worm: A First Guide To Outside, with Victoria K. Chapman for her blog, Kid Lit Connection. She asked me some great questions that spurred me to reflect on how and why I write books for little kids. Here is an exerpt:
“What was your favorite part about creating HOW TO SAY HELLO TO A WORM?”
“Botanicals: I loved drawing portraits of plants! And I loved the “casting call” – creating and getting to know all the characters of the little children who garden in the book. I also loved thinking of writing the book from the perspective of what questions the youngest garden explorers would wonder about.”
