More from Jane Yolen

On Facebook, Jane shared a link to an interview on where she shared thoughts about revising picture books. She used as an example something she had scribbled down a while ago about a frog thinking about the changes that come in the fall.

In the article she shares her steps for a first revision.
But she didn't stop there.
After the article was published, the frog idea kept tickling her mind -- and today she posted that the idea wouldn't go away. It really would make a nice picture book. So, she has worked more with this beginning and her revisions have changed the story.

Sooooo --I'm going to examine closely the next frog or autumn book that comes out by her to see just how she changed and improved it with her many revisions. -wendieO
