Author Stories

Why do writers write?  What inspires the writing?  What is their motivation?  We asked those questions of authors of our children’s books.

We know their intention is to write a story that will engage children, and that children will enjoy and want to read again and again.  And in nonfiction books, one that will inform children.  But what has attracted the author to write the book she or he wrote for us?

Pick an author from the list.  Share the author’s insights with your young learner. Check back frequently as we will be adding more author stories in the weeks to come.
