Picture Book Month

November marks the start of National Picture Book Month!

Picture books are art forms that are filled with great vocabulary! They contain about 30 rare vocabulary words out of every 1,000 words. A typical conversation between an adult and child has roughly 9 (from Jim Trelease's The Read Aloud Handbook).

Remember this the next time you share a picture book with a child. You'll be exploring new worlds and opening up new language experiences!
