Working with Words

More than half of all Peace Corps Volunteers were teachers, and many have returned to teach in the United States. These RPCVs have found children’s books to be rich resources for the classroom. What kinds of children’s books are most popular? How can the Peace Corps experience inspire topics for children’s books? How do you go about writing and publishing a children’s book?
