Have you read this article in the NYT last week?
If you love picture books, you'll find it pretty hard to take--not much in there I agreed with.
How sad that it becomes all about graduating and grades and teaching you something--instead of recognizing the incredible power of a story in and of itself-- however it is told, with illustrations or not.
A story can do so much more than just teach you.
It can transform you.
If you think picture books are important, then feel free respond to the article in the NYT site here.
