Thinking about how important it is to talk about these choices that illustrators make to helping kids build the people part of print awareness - that people make books, and they make lots of choices when they create books, and they make these choices for very specific reasons.
Sarah Matherly
54:53
What I love about all these ideas, they help our ELL's connect to stories so much more as well.

Question
Aruna Kumar Gadepalli
01:09:49
I posted question to host
Julie Kellndorfer
01:10:34
How young of a group do you use this approach with? Or, do you use it with all ages and just use a bit less of it if you have all 1-2 year olds, etc.
Susan Ellingwood
01:10:54
You are bringing your book to life for me. Thank you, Megan!
Sarah Eagan
01:10:59
Would you still encourage people during this time (of virtual story times, etc) to still be doing these things? Like would you recommend still pointing out these elements and asking these type of questions during virtual story times in order to be modeling them to kids and parents?
Josie Snow
01:13:18
How do you navigate a group that is “shy” or unresponsive (Or perhaps in today’s day and age unable to respond if the readings are recorded)?
Ginny Sieck
01:14:06
makes me want to un-process every picture book in the public library!!!
