What Makes a Good Picture Book?
March 12, 2016 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm| Free
It is never too early to introduce books into a child’s life. Reading promotes early literacy development and supports the relationship between child and parent. But how do we select good picture books for our children? In this workshop, parents will learn to recognise the qualities of a good picture book through the study of illustrations, plot, characters and other elements. They will also be introduced to distinguished picture books authors and award-winning picture books. Picture books that help a child connect to new experiences or emotions will also be shared.
The speakers, Raneetha Rajaratnam and Lynn Chua, have over 15 years of experience working with children in the libraries. Raneetha currently leads the overall strategic direction, content development and implementation of nationwide reading initiatives targeted at children and teenagers. Lynn Chua leads in the services targeted at children aged 0-6 years old. Together with her team of librarians, they work closely with parents and early childhood educators to nurture and develop early literacy skills in young children.
The Early Read Expert Series is a series of workshops jointly organised by the Early Childhood Development Agency (ECDA) and National Library Board (NLB). It is open to parents who have children aged 6 years and below. Seats are limited and the programme is free. Registration is required.
