Love of Reading Gallery – Cyd Moore

Monday, September 1, 2008.

Love of Reading Gallery - Cyd MooreThere’s one thing you can count on when it comes children’s book creators; they’re wildly passionate about what they do and what they believe in which is typically literacy and a love of reading.

Count illustrator Cyd Moore among that crowd. I called Cyd to interview her about Book Buddies, her contribution to our Love of Reading Gallery and when I brought up literacy and love of reading in general, she took off, joking that she’d jumped on her soapbox. And you know what? It was great. I could have talked to her for hours.

On this edition of Just One More Book!!, illustrator Cyd Moore shares her personal experiences with children’s books and her passion for getting children hooked on reading.

Among Cyd’s illustration credits are:

  • Willlow
  • I Love You Stinky Face (and other books in the Stinky face series)
  • Room for Rabbit

Books mentioned:

  • Missing Rabbit

By the way, if you know Mark you know that he’s very particular about good audio quality. More importantly, he’s extremely particular about great conversation. Unfortunately, his audio card acted up during this interview and the resulting audio is disappointing. The conversation is too good to attempt an encore performance. We assure you that if you can be patient with the audio quality, you’ll be rewarded by the discussion.
