While listening to "Will You Marry Me?" by Pinkfong, my three-year-old daughter decided that the song should have a platypus in it, and then she decided we should write a book together inspired by the song. Thus, began our journey into writing picture books together.
We worked together on Canva to design books together, and she was very opinionated on how the animals and designs on our books looked.
I designed more picture books based on songs I sing to her when I put her down to sleep, and my daughter was so excited to read the books by herself.
My daughter wanted to write her solo picture book, Fairies Call Fairies. I typed and used the mouse, but she chose every picture and decided each word.
She gets story ideas from waking up grumpy to the story of her first hospital stay to shampoo falling in the shower.
I look forward to working with my daughter on more titles as we're inspired!
