DYI PartyRosemary On WritingRead to Your BunnyResources

Digging into the Past for Stories
What is the difference in the creation process between writing for very young children and writing for young adults? I don’t really usually think about the difference. PencilThey are different. I think it’s sort of like the difference between playing tennis and maybe playing football. They are different arts and they come from different parts of the brain. I’m sure of this even though I don’t have any studies to back this up.

Writing for very young children comes out of my childhood and my emotional experience, and I think that—whatever that might have been—and I think that that’s why all of my books for young children have tremendous emotional content. That’s what they’re all about—kindergarten as a petri dish.
