Introducing PictureReading

Meadowbrook Press is proud to introduce children's author Bruce Lansky's new line of engaging PictureReading books.  Because the stories are told in pictures, they can be read to, with, and by children who haven't learned to read words, yet. Parents and teachers can take an active role asking questions and guiding the narrative or sit back and listen as the child tells the story by "reading" Bill Bolton's delightful illustrations.

PictureReading books provide beginning and struggling readers a shortcut to reading, letting them practice a wide range of verbal skills as they narrate the stories in their own words. Because there is no text, PictureReading books can be read in any language--perfect for bilingual households or those learning a new language. But most of all, the books are fun! Children will love the colorful illustrations and the humorous and heartwarming tales.
