Don't you just get warm fuzzy feelings when you think about your parents or grandparents reading to you when you were growing up? :-)

18:21 - Peggy George
Hi Rochdi! Welcome! So glad you could join us.

19:03 - Rochdi Mohammed
Hello.Sorry being late.

19:49 - Peggy George
Tara, can you share tips for parents/teachers about how to decide what kinds of things to ask kids when you are reading picture books? Things that make them think but don't just tell them what they are seeing.

20:43 - Peggy George
There are lots of great links in the Livebinder with different authors sharing why picture books are important. http://www.livebinders.com/play/play?id=2276823

20:56 - Peggy George
Would you love to have Tara as your mentor??? :-)

21:30 - Eileen K
Text-to-self connections motivate students.

21:30 - Peggy George
this is such an important topic!! diversity in picture books!!! kids need to be able to relate to what they are seeing!

21:38 - Peggy George
absolutely Eileen!!

23:13 - Peggy George
those emotional bonds make them remember the experience forever!!!

23:34 - Peggy George
Do any of you have a favorite picture book you remember from growing up?

23:54 - Eileen K
Every time we read the book Love That Dog in class I can't help getting choked up. That's what makes a book touch your heart.
