HELEN WU AND SONGJU MA DAEMICKE

I’m thrilled to welcome these two talented women! People say that when you need something done, find the busiest people and ask them…they will know how to get things done. And that is definitely the case here. We are in the middle of an unprecedented situation and kids and parents need information about COVID-19. Books are a fabulous way to help kids learn about stuff…but how do you get a book out there QUICKLY?

FIONA HALLIDAY

Blogger error alert!!!!

So some of what I say in the post refers to NEXT WEEK. Please forgive me, everyone…especially Laura and Fiona! What follows is what should have made sense if this was posted on January 25…

DAWN PROCHOVNIC

 

One of the things that always impresses me is how multi-talented my kidlit friends are. Many have had (or still have) careers as engineers, educators, and doctors. Others are, as Paul Simon wrote:

I’m sitting in the railway station.
Got a ticket to my destination.
On a tour of one-night stands my suitcase and guitar in hand.
And every stop is neatly planned for a poet and a one-man band.

I think, after you finish reading this post, you’ll agree that my guest today fits the bill of that last line.

Dawn Babb Prochovnic is the author of Where Does a Cowgirl Go Potty?; Where Does a Pirate Go Potty?; First Day Jitters, featured in the award-winning book, Oregon Reads Aloud; and 16 books in the Story Time with Signs & Rhymes Series, including one title that was selected as an Oregon Book Awards finalist.
