I Have 30 Picture Book Ideas

I have been working on one picture book idea everyday for the month of November just as many of you have been. Why?
  • I love picture books
  • I think they are an important way for young children to learn and be entertained
  • I love the illustrations that accompany picture book text
  • I love the challenge of writing depth for kids with few words
  • I love a challenge
  • I need the encouragement this challenge brought this month
Will all my ideas turn out as published works? I am certain not. But I am going to work hard at developing at least a few of the ideas because they are good ones, they are original and I like them.

  1. Thanks so much Terry for sharing this information, I had never heard about PiBoIdMo.

    Although too late for 2011, I will be ready for 2012! :-)

  2. Hi Terri:

    What a wonderful accomplishment. You go girl! I'm so proud of you.

    Warmest regards,

  3. I agree, Terri, picture books are not a dying art and I don't think they ever will be. My grandchildren love picture books, so stay encouraged and keep on blessing the children of the world with your art.
