Since closing yet another chapter three weeks ago on my middle grade book, I’ve been poking around in picture book land. I’ve revised two new picture books, revising another new fiction picture book, and am beginning to address a nonfiction picture book I’ve locked away in the bottom most drawer. I am pulling it up again. For some reason I really struggle with nonfiction picture books. it is difficult to do well. I struggle with taking all the information I’ve learned and sharing it in a useful, entertaining, truthful, accurate way. I’ve actually have two like this. And this break has given me the time to look at them critically and see where there are glaring mistakes, now that I am not so close to the work. I hope things go well. I hope they do. I wrote this book about two years ago. I am a different writer than I was then.
