Linda Sue Park is the author of more than 20 books- including Newbery Award winning A Single Shard (an astounding book and every bit deserving of the Newbery) and the world-changer, A Long Walk to Water.

When we were drumming up ideas for who to have on the podcast this season, I knew one thing for sure: I wanted to talk to Linda Sue Park.

I’m a mega-fan of Linda Sue Park, and in this episode, we take on whether children’s books can change the world.

Do you think they can? Listen and hear what Linda Sue Park thinks – you might be surprised!

In this episode, you’ll hear:

  • diversity in children’s literature
  • how books give kids ‘practice’ for life
  • advice for young writers
