Every writer of children’s literature should read the works of Gary Paulsen, author of more than 175 books and 200 articles. Behind the tremendous talent lies a personal story that is at once tragic and inspiring. His story will remind you how powerful words can be. And how life-saving a kindness can be.
I’ll stand back and let Gary Paulsen mesmerize you. (Note that there are three parts to this Youtube video.)
Quote for the day: “I expect to pass through life but once. If therefore, there be any kindness I can show, or any good thing I can do to any fellow being, let me do it now, and not defer or neglect it, as I shall not pass this way again.—William Penn (1644-1718)
