Happy Perfect Picture Book Friday, dear friends. One of my favorite kid-lit people has a brand new book that launched this month and I couldn’t wait to share the book with all of you.
Oh, and make sure you stick around and leave a comment at the end…and share the post on social media because the author, the wonderful Kirsti Call, and her publisher, HMH, are generously offering a giveaway.
WILL WRITE FOR COOKIES
INSIGHT – INFORMATION – INSPIRATION
I love relaying how I met each of our Will Write for Cookies guests – I think it shows what a close-knit kidlit community we have. As co-coordinator of ReFoReMo (Reading for Research Month), Kirsti was one of my first kidlit mentors. I loved participating in that challenge – it really helped me focus on the importance of using published picture books as mentor texts for my own writing. And I’m grateful to her and to Carrie Charlie Brown for creating such a helpful resource.
I’m honored to be visiting the ReFoReMo Challenge today.
