Great article in support of picture books and learning...preaching to the choir

    This is a great article to read / share with families. I think we all intuitively know this but sometimes it's nice to see the research and proof. I confess that it was my observation of my own children and how they learned through picture books that led to the science and math through picture book mission of Arbordale Publishing.
    I remember visiting my parents when my oldest was 4 months. I pulled out a Dr. Suess book and my mom questioned why I was reading to a 4 month old baby! I pointed out that my daughter's legs and arms were moving with excitement at just seeng the book. I'm still shocked that my mother, who always had a pile of books to read, didn't think it necessary to read to a baby. I'm glad I kept reading to my children!
