It’s the third year for the Picture Book Idea Month, but I’m just finding out about it now, thanks to Shelftalker.

It’s kind of a sister to the big NaNoWriMo, except in PiBoIdMo, participants are challenged to come up with 30 new ideas for picture books in 30 days.

I am always struggling to find good “big books” to use in baby storytime, and have enjoyed the couple of times I have gone ahead and made my own.

30 ideas is a pretty steep challenge! But I think I’m going to get out my storytime files next month anyway, and see if I can’t come up with at least a few new ideas for homemade big books. We’ll see what happens!

    Your big books are fantastic! So great to customize the books to the storytime and to fit a specific need.

    We’ll see what ideas I can come up with for new books! And then, of course, we’ll see if I can find the time to actually MAKE them! Thanks Tracey!
