For the next few weeks, we will be reading picture books about WWII. The older kids have read Anne Frank: The Diary of a Young Girl and Anne Frank Remembered by Miep Gies. I also have the books on my sidebar. Here is a list of picture books I got from Cay Gibson's book, A Picture Perfect Childhood.
"No matter how busy you are, no matter how short on time you are, no matter how dirty your house is, no matter how stressed you are...you have time to read, travel, study, talk, dance, paint, write, sing, and wonder each day with your child. All you have to do is stop time. That's right! Stop time...with your child and a picture book...for just 15-minutes a day. Cay Gibson does for reading what Rachael Ray does for cooking. She makes it a joyful feast for everyone. Gibson believes that picture books make an excellent catalyst for transporting children into areas of study they would not normally be interested in. "A Picture Perfect Childhood" is a tempting photo album of picture books that can be used to enhance the child's imagination, comprehension, and desire for learning.as well as the adult's.and it only takes 15-minutes a day."
