Today's teaching review looks at Marsha Diane Arnold's rhyming picture book Roar of A Snore, which could also be called Roar of a Story (bad joke), In it we look at the super smart ways that Marsha works with rhyme and repetition among other things. I also talk a little about Pierre Pratt's art and what makes it effective.
If you want to see a short video of Marsha speaking for the Picture Book Academy, click here http://www.picturebookacademy.com/writing-childrens-picture-books.html I also had the honor of interviewing Marsha in an depth video interview about finding universal themes and underlying meanings in the upcoming Craft and Business of Writing Children's Picture Books starting this week with enrollment open until! November 2nd!! To enroll, just click on the bear to the right or for more information, click just underneath it : )
