3 Facts About Writing Picture Books

Years ago, before I wrote my first picture book, I thought that picture books were really easy to write.  I figured, well, they are short and how hard can it be to write a short book?

As a reward for his super helpful behavior, I told him that I would purchase him the book we are missing from his Magic Tree House series.…

VIDEO: Best Books for Babies and Toddlers

Dear Diary,

As a child, you couldn't catch me without a book in my hand. My idea of fun was spending a Saturday at the library, checking out every hardcover I could carry. I would read to anyone who would listen, including my Cabbage Patch Kids lined up on my bed. I knew the mailman by name.
