A huge thanks to everyone who snapped and shared a photo of Zinnia and the Bees in 2017! And to everyone who read it, reviewed it online, checked it out from a library, or got it into the hands of a kid reader, which is the very best gift—THANK YOU!
It was a treat to have a fun conversation with teacher and podcaster Corrina Allen of the wonderful Books Between Podcast for teachers, librarians, parents, or anyone interested in middle grade literature. I’m a listener and fan of the podcast, so it was especially neat to have a chance to be on the show!
Corrina and I talk about Zinnia and the Bees, the metaphors of yarn-bombing and bees, adolescence, recent books I’ve loved, when Roald Dahl visited my school, my favorite picture books of all time, and vermicomposting. You can take a listen here.
