“What inspired me to write MEDITATE WITH ME: A Step-by-Step Mindfulness Journey was I wanted kids to have a way to slow down. I wanted to give kids a beloved book that they could connect to, that they could interact with, practices that were easy for them, a way to feel their breath in their body, a way to slow down when they need it, and a way to really calm themselvesâ€¦a way to sort of start practicing self-soothing techniques that theyâ€™ll really need throughout their entire lives.”

“I wrote a book called Girling Up, which is a map of the process of becoming a young woman from being a girl, and the book literally covers everything from puberty to how we grow, how our brains work, how and why we socialize, how we cope with hard things in life and how we matter in the world.”

“Over the years, narrating Magic Tree House has become more and more fun. In the beginning, I was kind of nervous and I wanted to make sure I did all the voices right. I practiced a lot ahead of time, and now, after what, 55 books, itâ€™s just a way of life. I know the characters so well and I know the stories and I enjoy so much making them come alive for myself again.”
