Carmen Oliver Joins Us For A Very Special Capstone Virtual Book Club....Join It Here, Friends

I am excited to share the third interview in our NEW Capstone Virtual Book Club

This time I had the honor to talk with my dear friend and amazing author and storyteller, Carmen Oliver. 

As shared on the Capstone site,  Carmen Oliver founded the Booking Biz, an agency devoted to bringing award-winning children’s authors and illustrators to schools, libraries, and special events. She blogs regularly for ReaderKidz, a website that provides teachers, librarians, and parents with the resources and inspiration to foster a love of reading in kids, K-5, and judges children’s writing contents for the Texas Book Festival and Austin Family magazine. Bears Make the Best Reading Buddies is her debut picture book. Carmen grew up in Canada and now lives in Texas with her family.
To kick off our time together, Carmen read her book, Bears Make The Best Writing Buddiesfrom her Bears Make The Best....series

We wanted to share this book to celebrate our children as writers as we kick off a new school year. This book is the perfect conversation starter for young writers as they talk through the process of being a writer. 

Carmen and I spoke about how she was inspired as a young girl to be a reader, writer and explorer.  She wants to help children instill those qualities and feelings too.   
You will find the recording of the book club above. 

I also wanted to include this sweet little book trailer for Bears Make The Best Reading Buddies and...
...the Bears Make The Best Writing Buddies poster from Capstone.  You will find it here

We hope you enjoy the third in our series and join us for the next Capstone Virtual Book Club coming later this month.  

Thank you, Carmen for being part of the Capstone Virtual Book Club.  Please join us again. 
Oh, and you will find and can subscribe to all of our Virtual Book Clubs here
