Ulysses S. Grant Says, "Go Blues!"

Mo Willems on NPR



Mo Willems was on NPR today. My favorite quote:  


... the great thing about writing for kids, is the things that really matter to us as humans are heightened .... It's love, it's jealousy, it's justice, it's wanting to drive a bus—these core, fundamental, philosophical issues. --Mo Willems
