My thirty years of working with children and books have shown me there are countless ways books can be shared in the classroom as part of the curriculum. I’ve also learned that sharing the story behind my stories can help demystify the writing process for children. Hearing the stories behind books provides tangible evidence that stories really do grow out of one’s daily life.
