I'm looking forward to reading all of your new books and following your career pathways wherever they take you. It has been a joy to follow my own pathway into teaching Children's Lilterature to some really wonderful college students at CSUSB.
I have two books coming out in the next year - I Want to Help! and Two Hands to Love You. The publishing houses (PeachTree and Chronicle) have been great to work with and I'm excited to see the final illustrations. The photo that I used for this blog will be on the jacket flap of I Want To Help! The little girl is my neighbor Emily, about whom I wrote I Can Do It Myself! and I Want to Help!
Overall, I'm looking forward to writing some more and to opening my students' eyes to the value and complexity of children's literature. I'm also looking forward to a potential trip to Barcelona. Carmen, any suggestions on where to stay??
