Coming This Week!

Coming This Week!
Week of March 13—A Chat with Margie Palatini
Quotes of the week:
Just think of something that would be “wonderful” if it were only “possible.” Then set out to make it possible.
—Armand Hammer

There aren’t just seven wonders of the world. There are more like seven million.
—Kobi Yamada

What if you could spend the week with a popular picture book author? Whom would you choose? What would you ask? I have a long list on people I want to sit with and pick their brains and, of course, I have tons of questions to ask.

This week on Picture This! you’ll enjoy our first author interview with Margie Palataini. I’ve known Marige’s books for years, but when I heard her speak at an in-service training in my school district a couple of years ago, I found an entirely new appreciation for her. When I started using readers’ theater versions of her books with students this year, I gained renewed appreciation. And when I've been communicating via email with her and experienced her graciousness and friendliness, I became a rabid fan!

Don’t miss a single post this week as we spend time with picture book great, Margie Palatini.
