So we're here to visit our Oasis Meme again, and I have the pleasure of exploring one of my favorite avenues in writing: Picture Books. I was excited to read this week's question because I write picture books as well as YA.
Last week's plug: Let's get out of the realm of writing and YA for a bit. What picture book are you thankful for?
With having four kids, I have a throng of picture books in my house. I wrote a post HERE matching up a favorite picture book with each of my children. For today, I'll be more general. STELLALUNA, by Author Janell Cannon is a fantastic PB. The story explores all that encompasses self-discovering and acceptance in language a young child can understand. The illustrations are fantastic and help convey the story in a sweet and gentle way.
Do you have a favorite Picture Book??
To join in the weekly meme, just do the following:
1. Do your own blog post on what you're thankful for today. It doesn't have to be on topic (but it can be!)
2. Be sure to grab our badge and include it in your post.
3. Post a link to your blog in the comments here so that others can find you.
4. Go forth and share your gratitude! (And when friending new blogs, be sure to let them know you found them because of their participation in the meme.)
Next Week's Topic: Staying near the topic of Picture Books, what imagery inspires you most while writing?? It can be geared to any genre.
