This week’s guest Tracy Nelson Maurer loves to have fun with facts! She’s written more than 100 nonfiction books for children, including her first two illustrated biographies, which we chatted about on the podcast. Tracy is very lucky to have both of these new books published this week! She lives near Minneapolis with her family and a bouncy dog named Bentley.
Since Tracy specializes in nonfiction writing for children, Lu asked her questions about her research process. How does she know what these famous people did so long ago? Tracy also taught Lu how she decides what words to use when writing for children, which are different from what she’d choose when writing for adults.
