“A book, being a physical object, engenders a certain respect that zipping electrons cannot. Because you cannot turn a book off, because you have to hold it in your hands, because a book sits there, waiting for you, whether you think you want it or not, because of all these things, a book is a friend. It’s not just the content, but the physical being of a book that is there for you always and unconditionally.”
― Mo Willems
Picture books combine text and artwork to tell a multi-faceted story. They are some of the first books we read and help to teach literacy and visual literacy, making them perfect for readers of all ages!
