Inspiration for Picture Books & Early Literacy

Picture Book Month begins with David Martin, Grace Greene, Leda Schubert
We had a full house on Saturday (Nov. 3rd) for our morning  of inspiration for picture books, early literacy and common core standards. David Martin, Grace Greene, and Leda Schubert (pictured above) all provided information and amusement. Amy Cunningham of Everybody Wins! Vermont introduced her mentoring program. Unfortunately we don't have a good picture of that (sorry, Amy) but we do have a link to December's Bear Pond Books & Everybody Wins! Vermont Giving Tree partnership here.

As usual we had more handouts than table space. So, we've collected the resources in electronic form at the bottom of this post. We also have blog post versions of each picture book speaker's comments, with links to even more resources for educators:

And, of course, don't forget to celebrate National Picture Book Month by discovering some new picture books and following along with our Picture Book Idea Month Challenge!
These links open in Google Docs - if you're having trouble with them try this version instead. 

What other resources can you find on the Educators & Librarians' resource section of the Bear Pond website? Here's a handout to share with information on how to get here and what you'll find: website handout (as seen on 11/3/12)
