Homeschooling With Picture Books: STEM, HISTORY, LANGUAGE ARTS, GEOGRAPHY AND MORE
Picture books are more than just pretty, colorful pictures on a page. They build imagination and creativity in the minds of little children. From the earliest of ages the images found on the pages of picture books help little ones to begin to formulate ideas, knowledge and information about the world around themselves.

“Before they read words, children are reading pictures.”
― David Wiesner, Free Fall
