I’ve been meaning to post about this gem of a blog I’ve discovered for a while, and decided what better day than today? Author George Shannon blogs about the craft of writing picture books in such detail that reading his blog is like taking an MFA in picture book writing. Every post is excellent, but my favorites are in his Writing to be Heard series. The series includes instruction on rhyme, rhythm, narrative, sound and content – all aspects of writing books that are meant to be read-aloud. All of his posts include a reading list for further study on whatever issue/technique his addresses in the post. Picture book writers should take themselves there as soon as possible. You’re welcome.
