Andrea Davis Pinkney, vice president and executive editor at Scholastic, chats about books for young readers with TheStreet's Cherella Cox. Given the popularity of series like The Hunger Games and The 39 Clues, the market is expanding and diversifying. Pinkney, who has written more than 30 books for young people, many of which have made the New York Times bestseller list, shares her legacy as a wife, mom and author, and advises on the balance all young readers need.

Disclosure: TheStreet's editorial policy prohibits staff editors and reporters from holding positions in any individual stocks.
