I am fortunate enough to be in a critique gorup with the fabulously talented Bonny Becker.
Bonny is the author of the wonderful picture book, A Visitor for Bear, as well as many other books. When Bear recently won the 2009 E.B. White Read-Aloud award (as well as several other awards) I was thinking that this was one of those times it would be fun for her to have a blog so she could talk about the experience.
Since Bonny doesn’t blog I offered her my blog space to put together a post to speak to her fans. She said she would like to talk about writing picture books so if you have any questions for Bonny about writing picture books, please post them here and I’ll pass them on to her.
Can we have a great big YAHOO for Bonny Becker and her wonderful picture book A Visitor for Bear?
Yes, we can!
A Visitor for Bear was name Book of the Year by my fabulous independent bookstore, Hicklebees! I always knew those folks at Hicklebee’s were some of the smartest folks around!
And psst, wanna know a secret? A Visitor for Bear will be the contest prize for next month’s contest!
Stay tuned for more details.
Woohoo! Congratulations, Bonny!
Fuse #8 does a lovely job of capturing all the wonderfulness that is in this book in her review.
And best of all, there are more Bear adventures coming in the future!
