For our first meeting, we all found cozy spots in the library to read some of the library's new picture books. Books were passed around from student to teacher to student ("You HAVE to read this book!") in a flurry of excitement. This got us talking about our favorite parts, things we didn't understand, and parts we may have missed the first time. Book lovers united in this short time of reading and sharing books!
But we wanted to celebrate picture books beyond the library and our own reading. We wanted to promote these books in BIGGER ways! So, students chose to create book trailers using iMovie or create a poster display for the library. Here are the fruits of our labor!

The Book With No Pictures by B.J. Novak window poster (Okay, yes, it doesn't have pictures in it, so technically, it's not a picture book. But we still call it that anyway!)
I Want My Hat Back by Jon Klassen
Journey by Andrew Becker
Quest by Andrew Becker
The Dark by Lemony Snicket (warning: this one's spooky, folks!)
Once Upon an Alphabet by Oliver Jeffers
We loved celebrating Picture Book Month and can't wait to do it again next November!
