Picture books offer a fantastic creative pathway for critical thinking and dialogue around a huge range of issues. You may think that picture books are only appropriate to use with younger learners but we have found they are just as powerful (perhaps moreso) when used with older learners and adults.
They have an ability to unlock the imagination and engage with challenging and even controversial issues in a way that is less threatening than many other forms of stimulus.
There are a vast aray of picture books available and we have created a Pinterest board for you explore some of those we use and enjoy in our work. If you are new to using picture books then you may like to take a look at the short links below and investigate some of our hot favourites to get you started.
