Mel Fell by Corey R. Tabor

Sometimes you just know that it’s time. Time to take a leap of faith and trust that it will turn out for the best.

This week’s Picture Book of the Week is Mel Fell, written and illustrated by Corey R. Tabor.

About the Book:

Mel Fell is about a young bird who knows it is time for him to leave the nest. He is scared, but he understands what he has to do. He jumps. And falls, and falls, and falls. It seems like he will never stop falling. Will he fly? It looks like it’s never going to happen, but the young bird keeps the faith. In the end, he finds out that, like the saying goes, some great things are just on the other side of fear.

Writing Exercise:

Mel Fell is an interactive book in that the reader has to change the book’s direction based on the young bird’s perspective. The writing challenge for this week is to write an interactive story. Write something that engage’s the reader physically, not just their imagination. Think of other interactive books like Press Here, I Say Ooh You say Aah, and The Staring Contest.

Happy Writing!
