As I’m working on my first children’s picture book, I checked out my all-time childhood favorite from the local Santa Monica Public Library:
“Corduroy” by Don Freeman.
For anyone interested in writing for children’s literature (from picture books to YA-Young Adult novels), I highly recommend joining the online Yahoo Group for children's writers and Illustrators.
This wonderfully supportive virtual community is a rich resource for information. The 2600+ members will answer most any question you have, no matter where you are in the creative process. Many are published veterans.
May I one day join their lot!
