10,000 Hours (3:41) In the book Outliers, author Malcolm Gladwell says his theory is that it takes roughly ten thousand hours of practice to achieve mastery in a field or skill. Our first guest, children’s book author and illustrator, Rosemary Wells talks about the 10,000 hours (and then some) that she put into reading, writing, and drawing from a very young age that eventually led to success in her present profession. "It was practice, practice, practice" she said, that enabled her to master book-writing and illustrating–and to find her niche. Three Dark Crowns (14:18) Next, Rachel chats with Jessica Verzello, Bethany Stevens, and Olivia Noli from the BYU Education and Juvenile Literature Library. They discuss the Young Adult novel, Three Dark Crowns by Kendare Blake. Book Adaptations (24:14) We finish up the show today with Cole Wissinger of the Worlds Awaiting team talking about book adaptations.
