Picture Book Idea Month – Day 26


It’s Day 26 of Picture Book Idea Month (PiBoIdMo). Coordinated by Tara Lazar, this annual event asks writers to set a goal of coming up with 30 picture book ideas during the 30 days of November.

PICTURE BOOK IDEA #26: I’ve been trying to wrap my brain around an idea that would combine my love of cross-stitch with a book for kids. I still haven’t figured it out yet, but I wondered if a book about a girl who likes to cross-stitch would be marketable. I learned from my grandmother when I was young. My girls enjoy needlepoint, even though it’s still challenging for them.  Maybe Susie likes to cross-stitch every day at recess or something. The kids giggle at her. The teachers keep pushing her to run around and play. Then at the end, they see she has created a beautiful picture. What do you think?
