I am so excited about the latest book study!  I really  learn a lot last year with Debbie Diller's Math Stations Book and I am looking forward to this summer's read as well!!  Here is a break down of the study with questions:

•What language might you use with your students talk about reading like a writer, bother as a writer of words and pictures?
•Name several books (not previously mentioned in this text) you would gather for your classroom’s units of study on illustration.
