ABOUT SUSAN ROBINSON
I taught myself to read at four, wrote my first story at six, and taught the neighborhood kids at eight. A career as a classroom teacher, school librarian, and university writing instructor allowed me to share these passions with thousands of students. I hope When Poke Woke will inspire a new generation to love words and books.
Reading, writing and teaching have been my lifelong passions. I’ve combined all three with the publication of my picture book, When Poke Woke, and school visits. I believe picture books should delight, teach and challenge children to think and explore further.
