“Reading Picture Books with Children: How to Shake Up Storytime and Get Kids Talking About What They See” offers a new, interactive approach to the traditional picture book reading. Titled, “The Whole Book Approach”, author Megan Dowd Lambert encourages active participation between reader and child, inviting kids to talk about what they see. The conversation embraces the many parts of a picture book – the words, the art, even the design of the book plays a part in the discussion. It is appropriate for all types of readings regardless of who is the reader (parent, teacher, or librarian). All conversation begins with dialogue, and what better springboard for discussion than a picture book. Presented in partnership with Derby Academy at the Hingham Public Library. Doors will open at 6:30 PM and the program will at 7:00 PM.
