This month I’ve decided to take on the 14:14 in 2015 Blogging Challenge at Christie Wild’s Write Wild Blog. The goal is to read 14 picture books in 14 days and share a lesson on how each book helps to illustrate a particular story element. The story elements are:
I’m going to aim for a post for each of the next 14 days. We’ll see if my 10.5 month old son will cooperate — after all, it would be to his benefit since Mom will be analyzing some of the top picture books written in the last 10 years.
Here’s the purpose behind the event, taken straight from Christie’s blog:
There are SO many picture books out there that I would LOVE to read and study, but simply don’t have access to them. I’m hoping this will open up a lot of doors – er…books – to all of us. My library can NOT get any book I want. I’d have to buy it or make a trip to the bookstore and hope they had it in stock, JUST TO READ it. This way, we can all share our access to the best of the best books and learn more about great craft and skill than we could on our own.
At any rate stay tuned for reviews of some great books. And wish me luck! If I can blog for at least 5 out of 10 days each week, I’ll be eligible for some fantastic prizes!
