Researchers have called for the development of dedicated authoring interfaces that can support caregivers in authoring socially assistive robot content. In this paper, we present an authoring interface specifically designed for authoring robot dialogue for reading a book with a child. Our interface incorporates past research on Socially Assistive Robot dialogue and introduces some automatic capabilities aimed at speeding content authoring. We discuss key challenges that arose while working on this interface and describe future work to evaluate, improve, and generalize this interface.
