Collaborating in the learning process should be an essential tool for every school librarian. Picture books can be used across the curriculum, for language development, reading skills, investigating visual language, introducing content areas and developing an understanWordle: languageding of the “third” meaning between the collision and connection of image and text. As a way into the skills needed for multiliteracies, picture books cannot be beaten.
