Podcast with Kaye DiCamillo

The podcast was so great. Kate is my favorite author, and I loved listening to her share about her life and her writing. I am reading Because of Winn-Dixie to my third graders right now. I plan to play parts of the podcast to them. It was so well done.

Interesting

Candlewick Presents has great interviews with their authors and illustrators. The questions are well thought out and the conversations are seamless.

Very Good Podcast

What is better than hearing how my favorite Candlewick creators and the stories behind their stories? Nothing is. Interviewer asks excellent questions, the artists’ and writers’ insights and processes are so, so fun to hear.
