Who doesn’t love Gary Paulsen?
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)
