Children were read a book by a researcher featuring 9 animals either using a commercially presented manipulative book or a scanned copy of the book . At test, children who had seen a copy of the book without manipulatives correctly generalized a new animal name to new pictures and a replica of the animal. Children who read the book with manipulative features did not perform above chance. In another study, researchers compared 30- to 36-month-olds’ learning of letters from a manipulative alphabet book with pulls, flaps and textures to a book without these features .

Writing The Story
Plus, there are plenty of paper varieties, from semi-gloss to ultra-thick matte paper. This is an interactive activity book that I think will be especially appealing to the youngest readers. Inspired by Smith’s big hit for adults Wreck This Journal, this picture book helps young readers explore all five senses, contribute their own unique ideas to the story, and reject perfectionism. Iris is mad when her roll as designated elevator button pusher is usurped by her toddler little sibling. To compensate, she imagines a new magical elevator that only she can control that will take her to other worlds.

Google Photos still has editing options in its app for you to add filters before creating a book. You can change the page layout at any time and the photos you’ve added to that page will adapt (unlike with Walmart’s service). One thing I didn’t like about Mailpix was the red line that appeared around the page indicating that a section might be cropped out during the photo book printing. This made me a bit nervous — especially with embellishment-heavy pages, and I found myself distracted while I tried to imagine how my page would turn out. Listen in as Laura chats with Linda Arms White on the craft of picture books, Rachel Rodriguez on conducting school visits and Janet Lawler on writing in rhyme.
Illustrating a character’s expressions like a raised eyebrow, an amused grin or any angry scowl adds subtle details, and a story becomes more engaging. One of my fondest memories as a father was coming home from work and being greeted by my two young sons who could barely talk or, for that matter, walk across the room. After a quick hug, we would head to the nearest couch, and I would read at least one, if not two or three picture books to them before I did anything else that evening.
