Find Someone Who Introducing 200 Favorite Picture Books /Polette
By Nancy Polette
This title focuses on setting the stage for 200 popular picture book read-alouds. The book introduces picture books to preschool and primary school students by encouraging them to think about how they or someone in their group can relate to what is happening in the story. Each of the 200 titles is described on a reproducible page that features a short introductory book talk and 10 questions to give to students. For example, students are encouraged to use the page to find someone in the group who has "climbed a tree" ("The Alphabet Tree"), has "broken a dish" ("And the Dish Ran Away With the Spoon"), has been "bothered by a bully" ("Wemberly Worried") or has been "teased by someone else" ("Chrysanthemum"). The lessons can be adapted for non- readers by using the pages as group read-aloud activities. Librarians will also find this a great tool for icebreaker activities in staff development settings. Titles covered range from award winners, to fairy tales, to classics.
