A picture book combines visual and verbal narratives in a book format, most often aimed at young children. The images in picture books use a range of media such as oil paints, acrylics, watercolor and pencil. Two of the earliest books with something like the format picture books still retain now were Heinrich Hoffmann's Struwwelpeter from 1845 and Beatrix Potter's The Tale of Peter Rabbit from 1902. Some of the best-known picture books are Robert McCloskey's Make Way for Ducklings, Dr. Seuss' The Cat In The Hat, and Maurice Sendak's Where the Wild Things Are.

[close] Hullo, there! I'm Christine E. Schulze, author of fantasy books for both young adults and children, with a focus on including more diverse characters in my books (my children's books in particular are inspired by my working with folks with special needs). I'm offering free ebook versions of my books in exchange for honest reviews. I appreciate anyone who can leave reviews on both Amazon and Goodreads, but if you can only do one, I understand! Reviews are helpful, and this is a great way for me to meet and interact with new readers! I understand that not everyone will like my books, and that's okay. That's a risk all authors and artists take to meet new fans and make awesome new connections. As I said, I'm seeking honest reviews, so if you don't like my book, you don't like it, and it's entirely up to you if you still want to post a review. Thanks so much for reading and reviewing my books! To get started, you're welcome to message me, or jump into one of the discussions to express your interest. God bless, happy reading, and may you all be inspired! Christine
