November is Picture Book Month! This month-long celebration focuses on the importance of reading, writing and literature.
Try a variety of authors and illustrators. Or look up a New Jersey author or illustrator. Try Brian Selznick (East Rutherford), Drew Sheneman (Bedminster), Airlie Anderson (Belle Mead), or Wende & Harry Devlin (married Scotch Plains Authors).
How about a Wordless Picture book? Wordless books (those without the printed word) lead to more conversations and a richer vocabulary. Wordless books build the confidence in early readers and of reluctant readers as well. Plus, these types of books are accessible to children and families who speak a variety of languages.
Check out “Chalk” by Bill Thomson, “Journey” by Aaron Becker,
“Robot Dreams” by Sara Vernon or “Draw!” by Raul Colon.
