Montessori and Reading: Picture and Word Book for Older Children

"They play tunes beyond compare, dancing through my crazy hair" is one of the wonderfully emotive lines in Neil Gaiman's work for children of all ages, Crazy Hair.

Our earlier post despairing the current trend of parents moving away from picture and word books for younger readers sparked an interest here in sharing some of our favorite picture books for older children.

The lines in Gaiman's books for younger readers are always a masterful work of art that inspire reading, writing, and artistry in readers of all ages.

Let these books inspire your child to draw and illustrate his or her own creative writing!
