From His Life: David learned to use his imagination as a child by making up games with his dog. He has always loved to write poetry. As a young adult he used some of his poems at local schools to help kids practice reading and writing. The kids loved his poems and he began sending them to publishers. Most of his picture books are rhyming poems.
Advice for Aspiring Writers: Read, read, read! David wrote, "I loved to read as a kid. And there's no question in my mind that my love of reading helped me a great deal to become a writer."
