Marla Frazee shares some wisdom for Illustrators

In this fourth video of a nine-part mini-series (most are under 4 minutes), two-time Caldecott Honoree Marla Frazee tells us about her journey to get published in Children's books, and what she ended up figuring out was the missing ingredient that initially held her back:


Great advice - Thanks, Marla!

I'd suggest you check out the other eight videos as well. You can find the series online here at reading rockets.

Illustrate and Write On,
Lee

Thank you SO much for this video/post. How wonderfully Ms. Frazee articulates the plight of illustrators and writers trying to get our first break! I never would have imagined that the mother of Clementine (the visual mother of Clementine) would ever have felt the things I'm feeling! It gives me hope. Thank you.
