Hope for the Picture Book

April 14, 2011

On April 13, 2011, the New York Times’ Opinion Page ran a wonderful response from the students at Birch Lane Elementary School in Davis, California who collectively objected to Julie Bosman’s October 7, 2010 article “Picture Books No Longer a Staple for Children.”  Here is a link to their response:  http://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2011/04/14/opinion/20110414-letters-scroll.html

And here is a link to the original article:  http://www.nytimes.com/2010/10/08/us/08picture.html 

The response from the students truly warmed this children’s librarian’s heart.
