Thank you for sharing your journey and process. HARD WORK! Congratulations! It is hard to settle on a favorite genre. I'm a teacher and I love all kidlit works. But working with children, I've noticed their inclination toward nonfiction . . . historical fiction in particular. And so I've endeavored to write to their interest. Not sure that this answers your question properly. Nevertheless, I'm glad I stopped by after reading Jeanette O'Hagan's post. I'll be staying in touch.
Hi Pamela - Thanks for introducing yourself and leaving a comment.That's interesting that you say you've noticed children's inclination towards nonfiction. I'm working with a seven-year-old girl with the Pyjama Foundation at the moment (a group that helps foster children with reading and other learning activities) and I haven't tried much nonfiction with her yet. Will have to give it a try. Thanks for taking the time to comment.
