I recently attended Litapalooza in Naperville, Illinois, sponsored by Anderson’s Bookshop and The American Library Association Annual Conference in Chicago. While there, I had the chance to talk to some KidLit creators. I asked, “What is your message to children and teachers about creativity?” Here are their responses.
After the video you can learn more about the creators’ books below.
