Mo Willems offers Picture Book Inspiration at the High Museum

Last night, I had the pleasure of hearing Mo Willems speak at the High Museum in Atlanta. He definitely has the right formula for writing children’s book. He’s honest, has great sense of comedic timing and is authentically empathetic to children.20150528_204126

Some of the best advice he gave was that books are more intimate than other forms of media. That’s because “books speak to you in a whisper,” and unlike television, a book doesn’t tell you how much time to spend with a scene—you can take as long as you wish.
