How important is creating a positive reading culture in our kids?

Interview with Hayley Gannon – teacher-librarian.

 Today’s guest is a teacher-librarian who is doing such incredible work getting kids excited about books that I just had to bring her in for a taco and chat about her amazing work. Often as writers, illustrators and creators of books for kids, locked away in our little nooks, it can be easy to forget about the very people we’re writing for. Well, today’s guest is on the front line and she’s here to tell us what kids are excited about. What they are reading. What their interests are. And much, much more. Please put your hands together for the wonderful, Hayley Gannon.
