From the blog: Tristan Bancks, popular children's and YA Australian author, provides inspiration for young writers in this week's post - Vision Boarding for Writers.
This snapshot of nearly all the titles on the CBCA Notables for the Picture Book of the Year and Early Childhood awards comes from Loretta Brazendale who has been busy reading this amazing array of picture books. She has rated each title based on her personal opinion and reaction to each story and they are presented in no particular order. There are some here that she definitely would have liked to have seen shortlisted. What do you think?
Pets often star in children’s books, and this list of excellent titles are all about dogs. Thanks to Maureen Mann for this terrific range of picture books to explore and revisit.
