Last week, I had the pleasure of reading my picture book The Trouble With Cauliflower and sharing my writing process with the kindergarteners and first graders at North Grafton Elementary School. When I asked the audience if any of them were authors and illustrators, I was thrilled by the response: a sea of hands! Clearly, the teachers at the school are doing a wonderful job promoting literacy.
I love writing books, but it is a solitary pursuit. Witnessing these little ones’ enthusiasm for reading and writing…and hearing them laugh heartily at the humor in my story…was great fun.
