#TBT: Matt Tavares Talks About GROWING UP PEDRO

Travis: It’s time to throw back to a beloved episode from the past . . .

Author/illustrator Matt Tavares makes some of the best nonfiction picture books around, and the story of how he created GROWING UP PEDRO is pretty great.

We hope you get a chance to listen (or re-listen) to this episode.
