As teachers, librarians, parents, and readers we all know that picture books can be extremely powerful. They can be used to unite readers, to enjoy the language of a story, to ignite creativity, to learn more about ourselves, and to gain better understanding of others. Picture books not only tell A story, but they help us to shape OUR story...the story of ourselves and the world around us.
November is Picture Book Month and as a celebration of the power that picture books can hold, I have invited several teachers, librarians, authors, illustrators and booksellers to share their thoughts about picture books here on my blog. Stay tuned for some amazing stories about "The Power of the Picture Book".
