Carol and her collaborators have researched thousands of children's books, so you don't have to. The results...Picture Book Guides to help you integrate literature across your curriculum. Each guide reviews 100 of the best picture books, providing a summary of the story, information about the author and illustrator, and a list of activities that support language arts, math, science, social studies, and the arts. As an added feature, books that are available on tape from the National Library Service for the Blind and Physically Handicapped are also noted.
