Something we learned about being readers…
Reading can be fun.
You should read a variety of books to know what you like.
Read all kinds of different books by different authors: chapter books, picture books, graphic novels.
You need to understand the topic of a book.
Read different books so you can find new books.
Phil Bildner likes reading all kinds of books and so do I.

When you read different formats you can learn how to write different formats.
If you read something you really like, then maybe you get inspired to read and learn about something else.

Writers always bring a notebook because when a writer travels and if suddenly they have an idea then they can write it down.
When writing a book your voice always comes through.
Always rewrite your story to make it even better.
When you write something, you need to keep editing until you think that there is nothing to be changed, and to make your best effort.
You have to edit things and write things over and over to get it right so it is your best work.
Put in your best effort if you want to put your name on a book.
No matter how long it takes, don’t give up writing!
Write so that it makes the readers feel like you are reading the book to them.
Everything has to be your best and if it’s not good then you have to write it again.
