For connecting with children's book authors while learning remotely, check out our new video interview series made just for kids! In Authors Spill the Beans, Greenlight Bookseller Ben Hoffman sits down with authors (virtually!) writing for middle graders—it's a great resource for parents and teachers to share with their students, and includes writing tips and insights for being creative while stuck at home (plus some silly clips and sound effects for kids too!).

Check it out here!
