Picture Books for Independence: A Community of Readers

Today is the Dublin Literacy Conference. This is one of my favorite conferences each year. For me the conference is a short drive, it has a reasonable registration fee, and there are always many authors and great speakers. Today Katie DiCesare and I are talking about Picture Books Possibilities. Here you will find a copy of our presentation slide shows and resources that may be of interest.

Picture book characteristics can support young readers.  I've started a Google doc of picture books based upon these characteristics, Picture Book Possibilities.  You can view AND ADD to the document.  My hope is it will continue to grow and be a resource for everyone.

 If you are interested in more reading about supporting students with self-selection of books, you might want to stop by these links.
