Bone and Story Starters...

Looking to start a story with your kid this Children's Book Week? Well, drop by the CBC's Story Starters site with ideas from folks like Jon Scieszka, Katherine Patterson, Eoin Colfer, Mary Pope Osborne and more.

Mine is a comic book.

So, click, print, and get writing and drawing!

And if you want music to get you in the mood for story making, try listening to the archives of our local radio's Spare the Rock/ Spoil the Child. Scroll down to the 2010-5-08 archive and at 1hr & 6 minute spot you can hear a quick interview about Cartoon-a-palooza and listen to some favorite real songs of fictional Cat the Cat, Elephant & Piggie, and Knuffle Bunny's Trixie (listen to the whole show, it rocks, literally).
