31: Kathleen Irish, Author

Author/Illustrator Kathleen Irish reveals the hidden meaning behind her new children’s book, Sir Thomas of Dale, on this week’s episode of Now I See.


I love to be with children because then I become a child. I have lots of friends among them because I can share their imagination. I guess I never grew up.

I taught my two children when they were young, ‘Books are your friends’. Sometimes that resulted in a friend getting hit over the head with a book.

It really was a wonderful experience. I was not expecting to have such fun when I was doing it.

Books are my friends. They are my encouragers. My character and faith was grown by books I read.

I read 100 fictional books a year. That doesn’t count non-fiction books and Bible reading.
