Story & Pictures By: Feature Doc in Production

by: joanna

We are thrilled to be in pre-production on an independent, feature-length documentary chronicling the lives of three author/illustrators working in the wonderful, wacky, and irresistible world of children’s picture books today. What does it take to reach an audience of children? Why is it so hard to write one (yes, we know your mother, sister, brother, high-school friend, or neighbor is writing one!)? Who are the gatekeepers? How is the art form changing? What are we teaching children through picture books? Why are they so crucial in literacy and understanding our world? What happens when you read to a child? And of course, the other burning questions: Why is The Giving Tree so controversial and what makes Good Moon a perennial best seller?

We want to know which children books touched you the most.  Stay tuned for more news, pics and videos!
