Children and books are two things that I love, so imagine my surprise when the New York Times reported that children's picture books have lost their luster. Sales are down, less books are being published, and parents are (apparently) demanding more challenging texts. But who says that we can't learn and relearn from picture books.
My new article on Blissfully Domestic, Picture books are more than pretty pictures, talks about how I can use one book to teach Jocelyn now, in two years, in four years, and six years. One book. Imagine what I can do with her whole bookshelf full of books.
