Last week I started a Picture Book Intensive with Anastasia Suen. As part of the class we will be reading five picture books a week. Actually, I'm reading at least twice that, but only five are required for the assignments. We're focusing on the latest releases, of course, as all of us in the class want to write and sell our own picture books.
Here's three from this past week that strike me as especially great for boys:
THESE HANDS by Margaret H. Mason, illustrated by Floyd Cooper
BLACKOUT by John Rocco
EARTH TO CLUNK by Pam Smallcomb, illustrated by Joe Berger
