Picture This ft. Beverley Brenna

By Hurley in The Morning

Highlights from our flagship live morning radio program, Hurley in the Morning, heard on voicEd Radio daily from 5:30-10:00 AM ET

Dr. Beverley Brenna is an author and a professor in the Department of Curriculum Studies at the University of Saskatchewan. Her recent article in The Conversation, “Picture this: These beautiful books help children read the world” points to the power of Canadian picture books.

In this conversation, we talk about what draws us in about picture books, some of the changing themes that are now being inscribed into the genre and the relationship between author and illustrator. We even take a look at some of the picture book recommendations made by Dr. Brenna.
