01 Feb

As part of my Commitment to Literacy: Picture Book It challenge, I wanted to spotlight one book that I’m completely in love with. Throughout the month, I’ll do multiple posts based on the book. I hope you will end up picking up the book and joining in on the conversation.

First of all, I’ll have another post next week about February’s Picture Book of the Month selection. Until then, let’s celebrate World Read Aloud Day!

Here is Matt de la Peña reading Love.

Here is current National Ambassador for Young People’s Literature Jacqueline Woodson reading Each Kindness.

Do share some videos you’ve enjoyed of authors and illustrators reading their books! Or, if you have a video of yourself reading your favorite picture book, share that as well!

And, if the Llama Llama books have been favorite read-alouds in your life, you’d love the way Every Child a Reader is honoring its author Anna Dewdney- with an award that encourages reading as a bonding experience.

You can nominate up to 5 picture books released in the past 5 years which are “a superb read aloud and also sparks compassion, empathy, and connection.” Nominations run through Valentine’s Day and the winner announced during Children’s Book Week!

My blogging is fueled by YOU taking the time to read my words. It is also fueled by caffeine. If you’re so inclined, my email is EARLDIZON [at] GMAIL.COM if you want to send a Starbucks gift card my way. Thanks!
