Foxy Picture Books

Last night, I attended the Picture Book Summit

with Katie Davis, Julie Hedlund, Laura Backes, Jon Bard and Emma Walton Hamilton.

The multi-media was spectacular!

Visuals succinct

Presenters well integrated

Topic highly relevant

The mini summit was a tasty appetizer to attend the Oct maxi summit!

While 4 videos streamed, there were visuals of book covers and names, as well as hundreds of chat comments from 100 participants!

The presenters performed 3 activities masterfully all at once! BRAVO!
