Does your child have a favorite picture book?

My daughter is 18 months old, and loves seek and find books (first link at the bottom) with jumbled up pictures of common objects/toys/animals. She likes the challenge of finding the things I ask her to, and gets excited when she discovers something new in the pictures (in that particular book, there is a tiny picture of a baby hidden on each page that is challenging to find, but makes for a fun game!).

The other book that she asks for regularly is "My Little Yellow Taxi" (second link). It has all sorts of activities in it related to the car - the first page has a cardboard gas pump handle that you remove, and a gas cap to open so you can pretend to put gas in it. The second page, you have to lift the hood of the car, and it has a dipstick that pulls out to check the oil, etc. She never tires of it!

Ideas for a Picture Book project?

Ideas for a Picture Book project?

Well, when searching for ideas for any kind of book, the best thing to do is to think about your audience. In this case, picture books are usually for children. Ask your self and/or group which age group you would like to write for. Then think about what kids of that age would like to read about. When is your book due? Maybe you could do a seasonal story: Christmas, New Years, or Winter.

Some helpful hints:

My baby daughter, who is 8 months, seems to like books with bright colors.

My daughter is 3 and loves stories about Fairies, princesses, dinosaurs, and snowmen right now.

My niece who is almost 4 likes pony books.

My nephew is 9 and he likes Star Wars type books.

I use to teach Pre-K and most of my kids liked books about animals and alphabet books.

My K kids loved books that showed kids like them accomplishing a goal or conquering a fear.
