Kids Are Smart: Writing Picture Books That Sing

Kids Are Smart: Writing Picture Books That Sing


Part of the Penny Candy Books mission to publish books that spark conversation between kids and adults. In this workshop, we'll explore some indelible children's books and discuss your stories or ideas. We'll focus on narrative, language, and how words and illustrations work in concert. The other part of Penny Candy's mission is to publish children's literature that reflects the diverse realities of the world we live in, both at home and abroad. This means seeking out books by and about people and subjects that speak to and from a broad range of human experience. In light of our mission, we will also discuss diversity, privilege, controversy, and trends in kid lit as they pertain to the stories you're working on.
