Video Interviews with Top Children's Book Authors and Illustrators from Reading Rockets:
Watch David Shannon, Chris Raschka, Buzz Aldrin, Avi, and many, many more of your favorite authors. Many kids are very concrete learners, meaning if they can’t see, touch, or feel, then new ideas aren’t real to them. That means many of these kids have no real idea of what an author does, and won’t be motivated to write on their own. Put real authors in front of them, and that can change.
