Do children's books still matter? Children's book authors Loren Long and Sarah Aronson have slightly different takes on why kids and reading belong together. Famous for illustrating picture books by President Barack Obama and pop star Madonna, Loren is best loved for writing and illustrating wildly popular books about Otis, a brave and humble farm tractor. Loren treasures the feeling of security young children experience when adults take time to read to them. Sarah writes middle grade and young adult novels, like Beyond Lucky and Believe, that inspire young people to thoughfully consider their views on leadership, friendship, and faith. Both authors have much to say during this episode of The Studio with Cheryl Fusco Johnson, pictured here with Loren Long. Tune in for thoughtful discussion and titles of books you may want to share with young friends.
