Eps. 39 - How to get the MOST out of a conference. (even when you're introverted!)

* So... during this episode of Rainy Day Diaries, the gardener decided to come! Wee!! So please excuse a little noise here and there, I tired my best to edit most of it out. ;) *

Todd Parr is an award-winning Children's Book Author (and illustrator!) He has authored more than 50 books for kids that have been translated into 15 languages! Four of which were published just this year! (which in book land, is just CRAZY PANTS unheard of!)

Many of his books are about hard situations like losing a loved one, feeling different & why being unique is awesome. Which is obviously up my alley!

I was super stoked to have Todd on the podcast. We talk about how he got started in this crazy book journey, why we need kindness in this world, & how not knowing what you're doing can help you get to where you want to go!

If you're an aspiring children's illustrator, this episode will inspire you by the serendipitous way Todd started his career. From books to working with incredible brands like FAO Schwartz & Sesame Street! (ahh!)

Even if you're not an illustrator, you'll love Todd's exuberant spirit!
