A Tutor’s Library of Children’s Books
I have spoken before about value and richness of children’s picture books and how many of them transcend the remarkably common opinion that works of literature and art should be put down at an early age. I have fond memories as a young teacher in London, spending hours at the local Borders and Waterstones bookstores reading through countless picture books on their sofas. Wonderful stores those were! Furthermore, it was only into adulthood that I built my collection of picture books. Not because I used them in class but because they were rewarding to read and study.
Today, I only aim to give you a list of some fantastic picture books. Some, for their words and turn of phrase; others for their artwork. Most of them combine both.
I won’t elaborate on the books’ worth here but I urge you to contact me if you ever want to talk about books for your children – young and not so young. www.enhancelearning.ae
