We’re tickled pink to have Heather Swain in The Children’s Book Review house today. She’s the author of many splendid books, most recently: her clever and inventive Play These Games: 101 Delightful Diversions Using Everyday Items, a follow-up to Make These Toys. Her brilliant new teen novel Josie Griffin Is Not a Vampire has been touted as Twilight meets The Breakfast Club. For more details on this creative wonder woman, be sure to check out her website: HeatherSwainBooks.com. Without further ado, we give you the eloquent Ms. Swain on reading to her sweet children.
