The Holidays are just around the corner. If you’re spending some of your Thanksgiving break looking for the perfect gift, might I suggest a fantastic picture book that introduces letters while educating about our world’s diverse animals.
Tawanda Marbury has written a book called “Amusing Animals from A – Z”. Tawanda has a background in child development, and a Master in Education. She used her expertise to craft a wonderful, engaging picture book to promote literacy and letter recognition for young children. I had the chance to talk to Tawanda about her reading memories as a child, her writing routine, and what subjects she wishes to tackle in the future.
1) What is your favorite memory from reading as a child?
Tawanda Marbury: During my early childhood, reading became a hobby of mine and has remained a hobby throughout my adult years.
2) Do you have a writing routine? Share what works for you.
Tawanda Marbury: I don’t have a writing routine. I write as ideas come to mind.
3) What subjects would you like to write about in future projects?
Tawanda Marbury: There are several topics that I will be writing about in the near future. A few topics that I would be interested in writing about include bullying and diversity.
