Cheryl Fusco Johnson speaks with three Iowan children’s books creators on this week’s Writers’ Voices. First, conversations with the writer and illustrator of “The Juggler”(published by Ice Cube Press). “The Juggler” follows the wiry and tan young farmer, who desperately wants to be a great juggler. Children’s author and educator, Jeanette Hopkins provided the words, with artist Stormy Mochal providing the illustrations. The last conversation is with educator Wendy Cavanaugh. Wendy wrote, illustrated, designed, and self-published the picture book, “Pumpkin in the Sky”, to teach people that baking pumpkin pies is an easy, fun activity that children and adults can share.
