Word Builder Giveaway Winner and Upcoming Topics

The winner of a free autographed copy of Ann Whitford Paul’s picture book, Word Builder, illustrated by Kurt Cyrus, is Corey Schwartz!

In response to our question regarding a favorite book on writing for children and/or young adults, Corey posted:

"I like Heidi Bine-Stock's series How to Write a Children's Picture Book. (I own two of the three volumes.)"
Congratulations, Corey! And thank you to all who shared their favorites. As a follow-up to our contest, next week we will share some of our favorite books on writing in general. This is in response to an Ask the Teaching Authors question. (Since I won't be posting next week, you can see some of my favorites listed in my column for the SCBWI-Illinois Prairie Wind.)

Also, if you didn't win this time, stay tuned! We will have another book giveaway on Monday, September 28, in conjunction with our first Guest Teaching Author/Illustrator interview.

A great website, I am a teacher and I have recently had my first children's novel published. I really enjoyed browsing over your information.

Back in town (after being away for Rosh Hashanah) and just wanted to say "Thanks again!"
