Q&A WITH STEPHANIE DREYER
What is Not A Nugget about?
Food or friend? Through fun animal facts and charming illustrations, "Not A Nugget" shows children a different way to view animals and their food. With a special foreword by Gene Baur, founder of Farm Sanctuary, this book is an educational resource for parents and teachers to introduce children to plant-based living.
Why do you write for kids?
I write for kids because I want to share stories that foster imagination and exploration, while encouraging them to be the best they can be!
How has CBW–LA helped you?
It has given me a community of fellow writers to connect and grow with.
Why would you recommend CBW–LA to other writers?
I highly recommend CBW-LA to other writers to expand their network and gain valuable enrichment tools and resources for improving their craft.
