Interview with David Schwartz

Monday, May 26, 2008.

David Schwartz with popcornWe generally expect children’s books to educate and entertain children. It’s a special book that inspires a child to experiment and explore the world around them. It takes an author that conducted experiments during their own childhood, experiments like measuring the length of a frog and the distance of its hop to figure out how far a human with frog legs could hop. It takes an author that’s willing to count and pop one hundred thousand kernels of popcorn to demonstrate big numbers.

Our guest on this edition of Just One More Book!! is David Schwartz, author of fifty books including How Much is a Million — which inspired our two daughters to count to five hundred during a walk prior to this interview — and Cybils non-fiction finalist Where in the Wild.
