I’ve read more than 100 books so far this year. Impressive, huh? No, I’m not an incredibly fast reader. Nope, I’m not a liar either. I really have read that many books! Here’s what I’ll be reading in the next couple days.
Picture books are quick to read, but don’t mistake them for easy. There’s nothing simple about writing or illustrating them. If you haven’t read one in a while, pick one from my favs list in my February 1 post and give it a read.
Study it inside out. The more you look, the more you’ll see how complex it can be. Every word counts, every page break matters, illustrations complement and supplement the text — and vice versa. OK, I see I’m boring you.
So just grab a good picture book and enjoy!
Which ones are your favorites? I’d love to know.
