Greetings from Iowa! My kids & I are having a vacation at my parent’s house for the month of July, and we’re definitely enjoying being back in the states! For me, I’m trying to catch up on all the picture books I’ve missed for the past three years! And my mom’s library has an UNLIMITED book check-out! This is great because I’m following author Pam Calvert’s Picture Book University lessons on her blog. You can follow along, too. Just click the badge. I especially like her lesson about character-driven books, which editors and agents seem to want.
By the way, thank you for reading my story on my previous post, Fishing Boat to Freedom. I did take it down, in case I decide to submit it. But it won 4th place in author Susanna Leonard Hill’s contest. So thanks so much!
