About the Behind the Book Video Series

JoEllen McCarthy created the Behind the Book video series in collaboration with Stenhouse Publishers because she believes in the power of read-alouds. Throughout her teaching career she has often thought of those read-alouds as her co-teachers, but, as she will show in this series, it's the inspiring authors and illustrators of those books who are the real co-teachers. So join her as she talks one-on-one with the authors of some of your favorite children's books and hear about their journeys creating them and what they want teachers and students to learn from them.
