  • About the Authors

Drawing on compelling picture books that can be used to directly support the AASL National School Library Standards for Learners, School Librarians, and School Libraries, this ready-to-go toolkit of lessons, worksheets, anchor charts, assessments, and rubrics is specifically designed to build learner competencies while examining big ideas inspired by picture books. An invaluable timesaver, this resource provides

  • 21 lesson units that cover the six Shared Foundations, each following a formatted template that’s easy to follow and incorporates the four Domains (Think, Create, Share, Grow);
  • a picture book synopsis for each unit, followed by lesson objectives, essential questions, materials, and duration;
  • worksheets, anchor charts, and exit slips tailored for each picture book and lesson;
  • “Quick Tips” that offer helpful ideas and suggestions to consider during the lesson; and
  • an appendix that includes rubrics to facilitate assessment in all six foundations.

With this resource in hand, learners and educators alike will think, create, share, and grow as they work together to meet the new AASL Standards.
