After this past week of blogging about perfect picture book words, a message board buddy asked me to critique her picture book manuscript today. It’s always fun to let the text tumble around in my brain where it can be met with illustrations from my imagination. That’s why they’re called picture books after all.
But with young reader’s in mind, I think there’s so much more that goes into a great picture book — such as pacing and page turns and payoffs.
That’s why I love this article and hope you do too!
