"My Favorite Picture Book" Blogfest!!
So, I'm a picture book person. I not only love writing them, I LOVE reading them. For many of us, picture books started our love of reading. They ignited our imaginations, they opened up new worlds both real and not-so-realish, they encouraged, they empowered, they comforted, they became a part of us.
In celebration of this unique art form that combines two art forms (writing and illustrating), I wanted to host a blogfest! On Thursday, March 10th - three weeks from today - I challenge you to blog about your favorite picture book. It can be what your favorite was as a child or what your favorite is as a parent, as a writer, as a teacher. Tell us about it! What made (or makes) you love it? Tell us in two sentences or fifteen paragraphs. Be creative or plain. Just celebrate picture books with me! Sign up in the widget below, grab my sad attempt at a button above, post on March 10th, and enjoy reading all the other posts as well!
