How does a story go from author's idea to published book? Who else is involved? Here is a simple and delightful e-book to answer these questions.
Going from author's idea to published book can be a long, tiring journey, involving many, many people. In preparing a presentation about the creative process for a group of pre-schoolers, author Kathleen McMillan (BlueBeary) developed this whimsical story, which explains the process simply and delightfully. This story is suitable for interactive use in classrooms and other settings. There are a limited number of images that repeat several times throughout the story. Assign one participant for each picture and have them lift the picture or step forward whenever their character or place is mentioned.
