I recently got to spend a good part of a Saturday with my friend and fellow Austinite Don Tate discussing our book Whoosh! (Charlesbridge, 2016) with a team from Scholastic — a team that included a terrific pair of educators and a three-camera crew!
First grade teacher Tierra Pitchford and PreK teacher Denise Dawkins head to the lab with author Chris Barton and illustrator Don Tate to discuss their book Whoosh! Lonnie Johnson’s Super-Soaking Stream of Inventions, their collaboration, and what inspired them to tell Lonnie Johnson’s story.
I hope you enjoy our quick, insightful chat with Tierra and Denise.
