Weekend Wisdom: Jerry Spinelli on writing for children

 I write picture books, and often times that means that when I'm invited to a school for a visit, I meet with kindergarten through second grade. But if I'm asked, I say I like to meet with all the grades! And I make it a point to remind the fourth and fifth graders that picture books are for everyone. That really goes for any book that is written "for kids." Picture books and children's novels contain some of the best stories ever written. Don't miss out just because they are for kids!

Wise words, Jerry Spinelli!
