This episode is part of our Publishers Showcase, a special series of interviews with children’s book publishers, which we are running during the weeks of July 2 and July 9 2007.
One in five children suffers from mental illness. That’s a pretty significant number of children lacking quality resources for families and caregivers. So, when her own son was diagnosed with mental illness, Gayle Grass took matters into her own hands. She created Iris the Dragon, a series of picture books to help children and educators.
Our guest on this edition of Just One More Book! is Jessica Grass, head of marketing and education for Iris the Dragon. You can learn more about Iris the Dragon and the books in which she appears by visiting the website, iristhedragon.com.
