Introducing…Picture Book Debut Author Jodi McKay


Jodi McKay in three scenes:

  1. She is the 2016 picture book debut author of WHERE ARE THE WORDS?, illustrated by Denise Holmes and published by Albert Whitman and Company, about Period who wants to write a story, but he can’t find the words. He enlists the help of some punctuation pals and together they not only find the words, they come up with quite a story.
  2. WHERE ARE THE WORDS? has themes of friendship, cooperation, a noticing what’s around us. It uses a picture book format to teach the role of punctuation. Teacher’s guides to come!
  3. Jodi McKay lives in Michigan with her husband, son, and crazy Goldendoodle named Ralph. She’s been thinking up stories ever since she was a kid, only now they are a little weirder. Jodi writes at home with a cup of coffee at her right side, a Godzilla toy on her left side, a laptop in front of her, and Ralph under her chair.
