When I write picture books, I often think about the experience that an adult reader and child will have when reading together. Many of my books feature rhyme, refrains, and sound words that are fun to repeat out loud. I also like to think about the conversation that an adult and child might have after they read. Maybe you’ll talk about what it means to be a good friend, whether and when you like to give or receive hugs, how to get along with a sibling, or how it feels when you’re late to school. Most of all, I hope kids and adults will find my books fun to read over and over again!
