Wednesday, Mar. 27, 6:00 - 7:30 PM
Parents, teachers, and caregivers are invited to join author and educator Megan Dowd Lambert to learn about the Whole Book Approach, an interactive storytime model focused on the art and design of the picture book, which she developed in association with The Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art.  Drawing on her books Reading Picture Books with Children: How to Shake Up Storytime and Get Kids Talking About What They See (Charlesbridge, 2015) and Read It Again: 70 Whole Book Approach Plans to Help You Shake Up Storytime (White Poppy Press, 2023) Megan will guide attendees to consider the difference between reading with children and reading to children. Active participation throughout the session will invite reflection on a diverse array of picture books to allow participants to use Whole Book Approach tools and techniques to enrich shared reading experiences with the children in their lives.

The first 50 registrants who attend the program will receive a free copy of Book Bonding: Building Connections Through Family Reading.
A book signing will follow the program. 
Refreshments will be served!
