“If a picture is worth a thousand words,
 imagine the value of many pictures plus a
 thousand words.”
                 Ammon & Sherman
                   Worth a Thousand Words
What are Picture Books?

    form a unique whole
   Pictures & text work
    interdependently to tell
    the story
   Illustrations extend and
    enhance the text
   Any book printed in the
    picture book format
Characteristics
           Usually 32 pages
           Pictures on almost
            every page
           Text is relatively brief
           Words & pictures
            share the
            responsibility
