Creating Timeless Picture Book Characters for a New Generation 

We all remember our favorite picture book characters from childhood, classic characters like Winnie the Pooh, Corduroy, the Cat in the Hat, and more. So how do we create these unforgettable characters in our picture books today? This session explores the qualities that endear picture book characters to children and make those characters memorable to readers of all ages. By looking at mentor texts and studying some essential elements of character creation and development, attendees will come away with new methods for crafting timeless characters kids will want to read about over and over.
