Carol Roth

I am a former kindergarten teacher and a published author of thirteen picture books. When I am not writing I enjoy water color painting, ballet classes, traveling and teaching English as a Literacy Volunteer of America. I am a mother of two, and a deliriously happy grandmother of five!

What do you do when you're in need of some inspiration?

When I need inspiration, I just keep my eyes and ears open. There are new ideas everywhere, if you simply stop to look and listen.

If you weren't a children's book author/illustrator, what would you do?

If I were not a children's book author I would go back to teaching kindergarten. My adorable students always made me laugh and filled me with inspiration.

What do you hope young readers experience from your work?

I hope young readers will have a good time reading my books. I always try to have a sense of humor in my writing. If children laugh and enjoy what they are reading, they will be more likely to read more and more books!

Do you have any favorite memories of childhood reading?

When I was a child, my mother would take me to the library every Saturday morning. We didn't have a car, so we walked there in all kinds of weather. It was worth it to me because I loved books so much, that getting books was like getting presents!
