It’s our 4th day with the members of the Soaring ‘20s High Flying Picture Book Debuts and we are going all the way back to childhood! Today a group of kidlit bookmakers is answering the question, “What aspects of childhood do you see expressed through your art and/or your writing?” Joining me to share their responses are Kelly J. Baptist, Rob Justus, Candy Wellins, Sam Wedelich, and Kjersten Hayes.
