A Heartfelt Response to "The Death of the Picture Book"

http://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2011/04/14/opinion/20110414-letters-scroll.html?ref=opinion

The New York Times recently published an article titled Picture Books No Longer a Staple for Children. This prompted a heartfelt response from schoolchildren. Their idea; designate February as “Love a Picture Book Month.” What a wonderful idea! Here at the John Jermain Memorial Library, every month is for loving picture books!

Here is the original article: http://www.nytimes.com/2010/10/08/us/08picture.html
