My favorite question to ask as a child was “Why?” I was always curious about the world around me—and I still am! The subjects for my books are always personal—they are driven by my own desire to know how something works. So when I research and write a book, I’m doing it for myself as well! I choose subjects that are interesting and exciting to me, and those that I think will capture children’s attention.
I hope that my books will help you promote curiosity in your classroom and beyond, and encourage students to become explorers themselves. When they see how much is to be gained by observation and imagination, they will want to do it all the time!
The world is a never-ending source of fascination and excitement. Have a wonderful time reading, questioning, exploring, and playing! Dive right in!
