Page Turns


It's Writing Wednesday. In the Jan/Feb 2010 issue of the SCBWI Bulletin, author Sarah Blake Johnson wrote an article called "Turn...the ...PAGE!" She talks about the importance of page turn devices as techiques to encourage reader involvement and promote forward movement in our picture book stories. An accompanying piece has a chat with Allyn Johnston and Andrea Welch of Beach Lane Books. In it Johnston says, "...the page turn is at the heart of the wonder that is a brilliant picture book." Maybe that's something to put some more thought into! Read the article in the Bulletin if you can, and more ideas on this are here and here.
