In this very special episode of the Read-Aloud Revival, we’re sharing an Author Access with the wonderful Sally Lloyd Jones.

This was an event celebrating her book Goldfish on Vacation, which we read together as a community in RAR Premium.

Sally even reads aloud to us in this one (twice!)

In this episode, you’ll hear:

  • beautiful tips for young writers
  • which was the most challenging Bible story for her to write
  • something that means even more to her as a writer than medals and awards

Books Sally recommends for adult writers:

Quote to remember:

A picture book is a story told in two languages.” – Sally Lloyd-Jones

“One of the things I love about The Jesus Storybook Bible is how it helps me see each story in a fresh and new, in a different way.” – Sarah Mackenzie

“It’s the power of one person to make this huge difference: He did one thing, he was generous with his time, and had this lovely vision… and out of that came all this joy. Then I got an idea for a book.” – Sally Lloyd-Jones
