Thanks, Pam. These lessons are soooo helpful! My current wip has 3 out of 5 of this lesson's style elements -- working to reach 4, or even all 5.

I'm a huge fan of LILLY'S PURPLE PLASTIC PURSE. It was helpful to examine the elements and see why the story works so well. Thanks!

I read through all of PBU last night and will be getting books to do the activities this weekend. This was a wonderful intro (and more) for those of us still slightly new to writing picture books.

I'm learning something new each day. In fact, I went into the bookstore yesterday and looked at a few of the newer ones. For some reason, I thought picture books all started on the right-hand page (like novels do). I'd never taken notice how picture books actually start out with a full spread.

This is helpful in that I see where I need to juggle things around so my tension and pauses/page turns are in the right spots.
