November is Picture Book Month!

Personally, I hold picture books very near and dear to my heart.  Not only do I love to write them, but I love to read them!  What could be better than snuggling with a child, a stack of picture books, and time to read?

PIcture books are a child's first doorway into the fabulous world of reading.  As I discussed in a previous post, however,  I do believe that there is a place for ebooks.  After all, as a society we need to do whatever it takes to get a person to read.

Yet, it is amazing to see the look on a child's face when they first learn to turn the page.  Discovering the story on the next page is exciting!  The colors, the words, the feel of the paper in one's hands.  All of this is an experience that is becoming lost in the digital age.

Do yourself a favor throughout the entire month of November, pick up a picture book (or 2, or 3, or more), find a child (or you can enjoy the books yourself if you don't have a child handy), and read.  Enjoy the adventures that you will discover in books!
