The multi-talented Craig Pomranz joins me to talk about his book, Made By Raffi, and so much more!
Inspired by a true-life incident, Made By Raffi is the story of a little boy who likes to knit and sew — at first he is teased for his hobby, but in the end he becomes a hero to his class. Recently released in Chinese and Korean the Made by Raffi is now published in 8 languages and 11 countries so far by UK publishers Frances Lincoln. Award-winning artist Margaret Chamberlain is the illustrator.
Craig wrote the book to support young boys and girls who are perceived as “different” because of their appearance or hobbies. It is a funny colorful book with a serious message and will interest those who care about promoting diversity and embracing our differences, as well as all children seeking to fit in.
Additionally, composers Amanda McBroom (Bette Midler’s “The Rose”) and Michele Brourman (The Land Before Time) wrote a song “Different” which you can hear at the end of the episode.
