This spring I'm attending a webinar called "Revising and Re-Imagining Your Picture Book" by Harold Underdown and Eileen Robinson. So far it's been enlightening. It runs once a week for six weeks. I would recommend it to anyone that writes for children.
I have missed the spring migration of warblers, the specks of color that flit among the trees during spring and fall. I hope to glimpse them on their way through in the fall.
