"A gently reassuring picture book about the milestone of a first sleepover, for fans of The Invisible String by Patrice Karst and Wemberly Worries by Kevin Henkes."
Can you imagine how you might illustrate a story? Which words require pictures? Most people have never imagined what a picture book story tells you without the illustrations. If you illustrated the book what would your characters look like? Before I read a picture book, I like to read a page or two without showing the illustrations.
I usually show a simple craft or drawing project between each book, to encourage kids to make their own characters.
Now, if you are writing the story, how do you start? Pirate Boy, by Eve Bunting illustrates the “What If?” type of storytelling , so I show a helpful template that I hope inspires kids to write their own stories.
