Stretching Our Hearts and Minds: The Power of Picture Books

October 25, 2021

Have I mentioned how much I love picture books?

I am always happy to have an opportunity to share why I love this particular form of storytelling. Recently I had an opportunity to write a short piece for the Autumn 2021 issue of Vocations, a publication of my alma mater, Knox College. Part of the purpose of the piece is to highlight our growing collection of picture books in the library, but it also offers a few thoughts on why picture books are so valuable for people of all ages.

Here is a link to a PDF of the magazine (my article is on page 6): https://knox.utoronto.ca/wp-content/uploads/2021/10/2021-10-Autumn-Vocations-smaller.pdf
