"...While We're Waiting."
Remember that song from Mr. Rogers' Neighborhood? Apparently the people during the writer's strike have thought of something to do: write children's books. (Via Mitali's Fire Escape.) The article is titled, "Striking Writer's Turn to Child's Play." Let me tell you something, Washington Post: the picture book writing: SO not child's play.
I expect a few goodies in the mix since the people who write The Simpsons and other long-running TV favorites are writing. Will this be a shot in the arm for children's books, or a really annoying (semi-BACA-y) idea? Time will tell.
