To find picture books, informational books, and big books on your theme:
1. Using Dragon OneSearch, select Curriculum Materials Center on the drop down menu, enter your topic, and search.
2. Limit your search:
To search for picture books
To search for informational books (includes nonfiction, songs, poetry, and folklore)
To search for big books (oversize books to read aloud to an entire class)
When selecting books to read to a group, make sure to read them beforehand. Picture books are for a range of ages; one book that seems perfect for your topic might be too advanced for your audience. It is easier to read a book to a group if you've already read it at least once.
