Okay, I will admit that I am a picture book junkie. Even as my own children outgrow picture books and move into chapter books, I still collect picture books to share with my students as well as read with my own kids. Picture books are glorious short stories with inspiring pictures that speak about big ideas in a limited amount of words.
Previously, I have written blog posts on the power of picture books to inspire students of all ages. I have found so many new great titles that I will be sharing with my middle school students for read alouds, genius hour, and just for fun.
