How A Book Is Published.
Grades 1 - 6 / Ages 6 - 11.
ADVICE TO YOUNG AUTHORS
Bobbie Kalman's books are very popular with children because of one magic ingredient -- Bobbie and her writing team "live" their books. Whether it is researching clothing of the past or studying rainforest birds, the team gets totally involved . . . When you put your feelings and opinions into a story or book, people will enjoy reading your creation. Your writing will be special if your love shines through!
As the author of more than one hundred children's books, and as a publisher, Bobbie Kalman seems to follow her own advice. Well known to elementary teachers and children's librarians for her wide range of non-fiction titles, Kalman takes the opportunity in this new addition to her "Crabapples" series to show us her team's behind-the-scenes magic.
Jane Robinson is a teacher in Winnipeg.
