Have you heard? I bet you did -- November is Picture Book Month! As you can see from the calendar below, every day brings a new essay by an author or illustrator on the importance of picture books.
|Calendar designed and illustrated by Elizabeth O. Dulemba|
There's more too. Be sure to check out Picture Book Month at the Horn Book, where you'll find a new article about picture books every Thursday. The first, Absorbing Pictures and What They Say written by Barbara Bader is already up.
And don't forget PiBoIdMo - Picture Book Idea Month! Created and hosted by author Tara Lazar on her blog in 2009, it continues to grow and grow! Great guest posts, great prizes and a whole month to help you come up with ideas for picture books. What's not to like?
