HI everyone, today I speak with children’s author, Julia Cook. Julia is a children’s author with over three million books in print. Many of us have used her books when working with our students. With titles such as My Mouth is a Volcano, A Bad Case of Tattle Tongue, and Tease Monster, Julia’s books speak to and teach children about themselves, their learning, and their brains in fun and creative ways. Julia Cook is a former school counselor and teacher, and uses her books to support our learners through research-based ideas. She now travels the country and abroad encouraging others to follow in her footsteps. “There are so many ideas out there that need to be shared!” says Julia who takes top research and creatively translates it into “kid language” that is both entertaining and engaging. Julia has the innate ability to enter the world view of a child through storybooks, giving both children the “what to say” and the “how to say it.”
I hope you enjoy our conversation.
