#FirstPictureBook

The little extras

April 16, 2018

While you are waiting for your #firstpicturebook to be published, think about the little extras to add to your website for kids or teachers. Iím not a huge fan of printable bookmarks because Iíve never seen anyone use a bookmark with a picture book. But I do like the idea of coloring sheets or printable posters. (How great would a kidís room be if the walls were covered in book posters?) Other extras include discussion guides, games, puzzles, and how-to-draw activities. What items would work well with your book? To get some ideas, take a look at the little extras these authors created for their #firstpicturebooks:
