By Fred Hechinger | November 10 , 2011

Fred Hechinger sat down with Jose Diaz-Balart, Telemundo anchorman, to discuss his life as a reporter and coverage of Education Nation. Jose Diaz-Balart is one of the biggest names in Latino journalism. He has his own show on Telemundo,  and made history as the first Cuban-American to host American network news program.

He discussed the importance of covering education, as well as the importance of covering politics. Along with that he told Fred about the hardest stories to report on, and the stories that Hispanic and Latino audiences are interested in. He also gave tips in reporting for young people.

    Smooch Your Pooch

    Smooch Your Pooch

    by Teddy Slater

    "Get out your fiddle and play a sweet song.

    Musical pups will love howling along.

    There are so many wonderful things you can do

    for the four-legged friend who's so loyal to you."

    Funny and sweet, this rhyming ode to dogs reminds us to show our love every day-in small ways, in silly ways, in soft and warm and wise ways. With loose, active art that captures the fuzz and the motion in equal measure.
