In a good children's picture book, everything makes sense
The success of the reading sessions depends a lot on the quality of the works, and the selection of children’s picture books is a fundamental step for any proposal to share readings.
It can be done according to various criteria, depending on the audiences addressed and the reading contexts.
But it is important to choose children’s picture books whose literary and aesthetic quality feed the imagination of young and old, for a lively and joyful awakening to language, literature and culture.
To work on this question of choice and selection of children’s picture books, to build up rich and varied collections, the Read with me team is constantly training with specialists in Youth literature.
We share this work in times of awareness and training, and in reading committees, conferences and working groups offered each semester to our network.
The work around children’s picture books is of course done in conjunction with the companions of the world of books:
- With the media libraries and libraries of the French departments (in particular Le Nord and Le Pas de Calais) and the municipalities,
- With the independent booksellers of the Hauts-de-France region, grouped together in the regional association Booksellers from the upper [Les libraires d’en haut], and the French network of Witch bookstores [Librairies Sorcières].
