Picture Books To Share With Older Readers and Teens
It happens more often than you might suspect. Some well-meaning soul comes into your children's room and wants to find picture books to read to a class of sixth graders they'll be visiting soon. One wonders for a moment if the person has ever seen a sixth grader, but this is their request and you have to honor it. So what do you do? Do you have a list of picture books for older readers/teens hidden somewhere on your desktop? Now you do.
The clever CCBC has compiled a list entitled Never Too Old: Picture Books to Share with Older Children and Teens. They have even, bless their hearts, given suggested age levels for each book. This kind of list might also be very helpful for those adults learning to read for the first time (we have a section of our library called Lifelong Learning that is dedicated to such titles) as well as teens with reading disabilities or low comprehension.
