I went to Em’s school today to volunteer for D.E.A.R. (Drop Everything and Read), and found that our fantabulous school librarian had rearranged the library. In addition to the fiction, nonfiction, biography, etc. categories, there is now one whole wall called “Everybody Books.” See?
Do you also see what type of books are on that shelf? PICTURE BOOKS. The bottom photo gives a closer look, and the picture only shows a fraction of the total space dedicated to these “Everybody Books.”
I think that pretty much says it all. Tell THAT to the New York Times.
