Hope you all got to see part of the eclipse yesterday! Here in Minneapolis, not so much. But it’s still fun to have so much attention focused on the moon. In fact, yesterday I shared a poem about how thrilled the moon was to finally be the star of the show.
Recently, I was happy to answer Linda Ashman‘s questions about writing If You Were the Moon for the Picture Book Builders blog! Linda is one of those people whose books consistently entertain and enchant me. In fact, her Castles, Caves, and Honeycombs was a mentor text for A Leaf Can Be…. And her recent Ella Who? is just so heartwarming and funny! So head on over to Picture Book Builders to check out the story behind the story of If You Were the Moon–and more. (That’s my way of admitting I answered the questions more than a month ago, and I will probably be as surprised by what I said as you will be:>)
