I've finally launched my picture book blog called Teach with Picture Books which will feature a new picture book every other day. Picture books are a fantastic tool for teachers at all grade levels, from pre-K through high school. The right picture book can activate student schemas, set a purpose for learning, build background information, illustrate discrete literary features, provide models for writing, and create a common literary culture in the classroom.
In addition to the featured picture book and its summary, teachers will find related themes, links, and cross-curricular extensions for each book. I absolutely welcome book sugestions for review, as well as guest reviewers!
