CBC Teen Outreach Panel

How does a children’s book get made? What kinds of steps go into the creation, execution, and eventual sale of a children’s book? Could I get a job in this field? Come listen to our Teen Outreach Panel, sponsored by the Children’s Book Council Diversity Committee, composed of people who work on children’s books from art to editorial, design to marketing, reviewing and bookselling, as they talk about their jobs and answer questions.

Thyra Heder, Alfie

Nia loves Alfie, her pet turtle. But he's not very soft, he doesn't do tricks, and he's pretty quiet. Sometimes she forgets he's even there--until the night before Nia's seventh birthday, when Alfie disappears. Then, in an innovative switch in point of view, we hear Alfie's side of the story. He didn't leave Nia--he's actually searching for the perfect birthday present for his dear friend. Can he find a gift and make it back in time for the big birthday party?
