Limited Capacity seats available

Not all picture books follow the traditional story format of character, plot, setting and solution. Breaking the traditional picture book format, these alternative structure fiction books provide a non traditional and intriguing format that support and broaden critical and creative thinking as well as inferential comprehension. These books many of which are in your classroom already beckon the reader to ponder over the pictures and text and then discover often hidden meanings. Examples and explanations of how these books work will be shared and a bibliography of these cleverly authored and illustrated books will be shared.
