And the winner is...
One reader asked, “Can you please recommend some great picture books around the theme of imagination?” What a great question, Jen Scully! You are the lucky winner, and a gift of a beautiful picture book is on its way to you. According to Albert Einstein, “Imagination is more important than knowledge.” Also, everyone, even high school students, can enjoy great picture books.
Perhaps you are going to be teaching a new course and need some new K-12 resources; or you are looking for the perfect read aloud for an upcoming unit; or you just need some ideas for great books or Web sites to work with a particular student or students.
I am at your service, NYS TESOL friends! Please feel free to email me about what you are looking for. I am happy to help.
