Backstory of The Squiggle Wiggles, which was first written in Afrikaans; Die Skarrelwarrels.
I am an upper elementary school teacher and taught a picture book writing unit. I always write alongside my students and model going through the entire writing process. I developed the idea of The Squiggle Wiggles, wrote the illustration briefs and ended up sending my idea to Naledi Publishing House. They accepted The Squiggle Wiggles concept and so started the whole publishing process. I shared every step with my fourth graders and together we experienced how a picture book is developed, published and finally available in bookstores around the country.
