Let’s encourage our kids’ hobbies by giving them true stories about people who share their interests. Do you know kids who love sports, space, or singing? Animals, art, or activism? Food or fashion? I have book recommendations for them here at my True Story Bookshop and interviews with the authors on my True Story Blog.
Karlin Gray is the author of picture-book biographies ANNE and HER TOWER OF GIRAFFES (Kids Can Press, Sep. 6, 2022), SERENA: THE LITTLEST SISTER, and NADIA: THE GIRL WHO COULDN’T SIT STILL as well as AN EXTRAORDINARY ORDINARY MOTH.
