A very good reason to be a children’s writer…

I just came upon the following entry on Verla Kay’s Blueboards for children’s writers (an amazing source of writerly information of all varieties, btw):

“I heard Bruce Colville speak at a SCBWI conference several years ago. What he said has inspired and motivated me ever since:

“I write books to help children become braver, kinder, and gentler.””

Exactly!
