Phoebe Fox Interview with Porter Barnwood’s Emy Porter
Join Children’s Author Phoebe Fox for an interview with the Author of Grandma’s Chicken Stories – Emy Porter! This book was “inspired by the bedtime tales told by Carolyn Helscher Sladek to her grandchildren. Growing up in rural Iowa, one of her chores as a child was to collect eggs and care for the chickens on the family farm. She has worked as a teacher and educator for over 20 years. Carolyn and her husband, Frank, have raised four children to adulthood. They live happily in Iowa with their dog, Eddison.” This darling book helps children learn the acronym for the colors of the rainbow: ROY-G-BIV. It also teaches about how caterpillars become butterflies and chickens hatch from eggs!
