In Pictures and in Words Book Study

Guess what’s coming…’s a summer book study!

I am super excited to be a part of this book study hosted by my good buddy Deedee Wills! We will be diving into Katie Wood Ray's Book, In Pictures and in Words.  Do you know Katie? If you don’t you MUST meet her!  She is the guru of writing, and is fantastic!

I’m always wanting to learn more about writing with little ones.  Writing time is my absolute FAVORITE time of the day.

So, are you going to work through this book together wish some of my favorite bloggers!!??  Read the details below:

When does it start? 

On June 22nd, Deedee will launch the book study on her blog.  Then each week another blog will host a section of the book. 

How do I participate?

You will want to follow the blogs who are hosting the chapters (so you won't miss anything).

If you have a blog:  You can create a post (using our guiding questions) and link up with the hosting blog.

If you do not have a blog:  You can simply comment on the blog with your reflections.

The beautiful thing about blog book studies is you can check in whenever you want.  If you have plans during this time of year... no worries... The information will be here waiting for you!

What is the schedule?
Deedee created a book mark to help you along the way.  It has the hosting blog, dates, and guiding questions.
Simply print it out and keep it with you as you go through the book study.
