Picture Books for Older Children

Parents and teachers often do not think of picture books as being appropriate for children third through fifth grade. Often, this is because children want to read chapter books, or are required to read chapter books for school. Although chapter books are great for building literacy skills in older children, picture books are still a great way to share a story with an older child.
