I just found a bunch of great author and illustrator interview videos on the Reading Rockets website!
They have over 100 video interviews with authors like Megan McDonald, David Adler, Mem Fox, Gail Gibbons, Greg Tang, Chris Van Allsburg and many more. I think these will be great to include in an author study or in connection with a read-aloud or a lesson on author’s purpose.
Many authors have several interviews. Don’t stop after the first one. You’ll want to hear the story about how Megan McDonald really did put a fake hand in the toilet to scare her sister!
I don’t know about you, but I’ve found that a short video can be a great attention-grabber for a library lesson.
I just had to write a quick post to share these with you!
