Pot-O-Gold Blogger Award #20: Picture Book Biographies

This months's Pot-O-Gold Blogger Award goes out to an AWESOME blog I recently discovered. 


Jeanne Walker Harvey's True Tales and a Cherry On Top. She shares picture book biographies, and has even written one herself
A taste of children's narrative nonfiction picture books...mostly biographies... with something more...by the children's book author, Jeanne Walker Harvey
Why I love her blog:
Having written a biography myself, and coming from a teaching background, I am fascinated with biography. She even shares the publisher, publication date, and number of pages. Thank you!

A True Tale with A Cherry On Top

Author:  
     and Illustrator:  

Character:  

Overview from the jacket flap:

The T stands for Tantalizing Taste, where she shares a snippet of the book. Then she shares "And Something More" where she shares a bit of history about the making of the book, the story about how it came into fruition, or collaborative efforts involved in the final product.

I just LOVE IT!!!

I created this award for excellent blogs based on... 
  • interesting and helpful content AND
  • visually appealing and easy-to-navigate design
It's an award that says, "Look at this awesome blog! There's a wealth of information here! If you visit once, you'll want to return again and again." In other words, it's like discovering a pot of gold. 

How the award works:
  1. Say thank you to the person who gave it to you.
  2. Write a post and include the image of the award, a link to the person's blog who gave it to you, and a link to my blog, WRITE WILD. (Copy and paste the rules in your post.)
  3. Award four bloggers this award and tell why each is a Pot-O-Gold! (If you receive this award more than once, you only have to forward it the first time.)
  4. Share four simple things about yourself: 1-a time you had to exercise FAITH, 2-something you HOPE for, 3-something (or someone) you LOVE, and 4-a time when you felt LUCK.
Keep on keepin' on...

  1. Lovely post, Christie. Live gets so busy I don't get a chance to come often...which is too bad because you always have something of value to say. I love your Pot-O-Gold Blogger Award...a great way for your readers to discover wonderful new places to visit.
    I know that I follow you...but don't know that I ever got your free e-book...looks like something I should have. Should I enter my email again?
