Where does creative inspiration come from? Today on “Worlds Awaiting” children’s book author, Marilyn Singer, talks with Rachel about her inspiration when creating a book. Singer is known also for touching a variety of subjects – from animals to schools to aliens! She’s also invented a thing-a-ma-jig that she calls a “reverso” poem – and we’ll be learning about that. Singer is the winner of the 2015 National Council of Teachers of English Award for Excellence in Poetry. She has over 100 books to her credit. She’s also the creator of five picture books featuring Tallulah, a young ballet student.
