Picture Books

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.
