I could chat with John Schumacher, aka @MrSchuReads, Ambassador of School Libraries for Scholastic, about books for hours— so chatting with him about my own book on his blog is a special honor!
Mr. Schu: Hello, Deborah Freedman! Thank you for returning to Watch.Connect.Read. to celebrate Carl and the Meaning of Life. I love everything about this beautiful picture book—the case cover, barcode, paper, story, heart. EVERYTHING! Thank you for always putting your heart on the page.
Deborah Freedman: Thank you for this! Putting one’s heart on the page is a scary thing, so when I send love out to readers and then am lucky enough to have it returned… it means the world to me…
I loved chatting earlier this month with Carter Higgins, author, K-6 librarian, and insightful reviewer of picture books. We talk about creativity, the fact that I am plot-challenged, and a few other things...
Take a look, at her blog, Design of the Picture Book.
In anticipation of the publication of This House Once, I had the honor of chatting recently with two wonderful picturebook friends about my newest book. We talked about things like inspiration, making one's home an art-friendly environment, and if I weren't writing books, what would I be doing? You can read those interviews here:
All The Wonders is a home for readers to discover new books and to experience the stories they love in wondrous ways...
You can listen to the podcast here.
I am interviewed by friend and writer Faith Hough, in which we talk about telepathy, ice cream, and a few other things: you can read our chat on her blog, Writing "in the cracks of the day."
