The EYES (& ears & minds & hearts) HAVE IT.
I’m talking about last year’s inspections of a number of picture books that I and a few other kid lit writers voted (devoted) to share on our blogs. We said ‘AYE’ to the challenge and engaged eyes, ears, minds and hearts in picking and parsing some great picture books.
I learned a plethora of information about ESSENTIAL ELEMENTS that make picture books tick.
Patterns, Pacing, Word Play, Rhyme, Plot, Character, Theme, Conflict, Dialogue, Beginnings and Endings.
If you’d like to see what we discovered, go to this link for links to our reviews of 90+ picturebooks:
