So Day 1's post by Carrie Charley Brown deals with using repetition in picture book manuscripts. Hmm. Did I think of trying that? This is a definite possibility.
Today's Picture Books
I was only able to get two of the books recommended for today.
The Giant Jumperee by Julia Donaldson & Helen Oxenbury. This a slight story for which the repetition is hugely important. There would be no story without it. That is not a complaint. I can imagine child readers, particularly those who are hearing Jumperee, loving this thing.
One Plastic Bag by Miranda Paul with illustrations by Elizabeth Zunon is nonfiction using repetition. A great choice for an example. In this case, the repetition breaks up what could be a very traditional account of an event. It gives Plastic Bag a creative nonfiction vibe.
So Day 1...A good start.
