At the Estabrook School we refer to picture books as Everybody Books because they really are for Everybody. These are 4 myths about picture books that we would like to dispell and a link to a blog that will give more information. Then check the tabs for a few of the titles that we have in our library that we recommend.
Myth 1 -
Picture books are easier to read than chapter books.
Myth 2 -
Illustrations make it easy for children to read and reduce the demands on the reader.
Myth 3 -
Getting children reading longer texts earlier will maximize their reading growth.
Myth 4 -
Picture books are just for children.
