I’ve chosen to share picture books with brilliant opening lines. In just a few sentences they offer an irresistible invitation to continue turning pages. Strong opening lines hold up as they prove their relevance throughout the story. I strive for these kinds of opening lines in my stories—lines that invite and delight.
