Aardvark Interview

I’m delighted that Mathew Winner (@MatthewWinner) recently interviewed me for his fabulous podcast, All the Wonders far ranging conversation touches on:

—the story behind my recent nonfiction picture book Can an Aardvark Bark?

—the Interactive Text Structure Timeline I created to accompany Can an Aardvark Bark?

Perfect Pairs, resource guides I co-wrote with educator Nancy Chesley so that teachers can integrate science and ELA

—the importance of sharing plenty of high-quality expository nonfiction books with children

I know it’s a busy season, but I hope you can take the time to listen.
