Today I am excited to welcome everyone to the newest feature on my blog: The Picture Book Diner. This feature was inspired by Jeffrey Duckworth's awesome illustration at the top of my blog. Originally, on my website, this image was a wonderful truck stop (also drawn by Jeff) for the launch of my picture book, Where Do Diggers Sleep at Night?.
When I launched this blog, I wanted to use the same wonderful image, but I asked Jeff to help me change it up a bit. Now it was transitioning from a truck stop into "Brianna's Book Stop" and all the building titles changed accordingly. The mini-mart became a library (Jeff even changed the original shelves of food behind the frosted glass to shelves of books!) and "Digger's Diner" became the Picture Book Diner.
At first this was just a wonderfully fun image for my new blog. But the idea of a picture book diner kept tugging at me. What a fun place to "taste" an incredible variety of picture books! And so I have decided to make The Picture Book Diner a regular feature on my blog.
Starting next week I'll try to share a book I've been tasting lately. Or several books. (With picture books it is hard to stop with just one!)
For today, I'd like to invite you to share:
What picture books have you been enjoying lately? Which picture books should my boys and I be sure not to miss?
