Jane Yolen, Children's Literature legend!

| E:208

No matter what your age, chances are you grew up reading Jane Yolen's books. She is a children's literature institution who has been compared to Aesop and Hans Christian Andersen and countless generations learned to read through her stories.

This month, she released her 365th (!!) book and so we're celebrating a Year of Jane Yolen. Listen in as she describes the process of creating books for children of all ages and why she still loves doing it.
