This year her books were part of the author study for Global Read Aloud. We didn't do so well with the global part - though we did participate in some padlets from other schools. We did a wonderful job with the Read Aloud part though. I love her artwork and have enjoyed the books she's authored too. We read Nana in the City, The Troublemaker, The Reader, Yard Sale, Twenty Yawns, and It is Not Time for Sleeping.
My kindergarten and first grade students really got to learn a lot about illustration and the design of picture books during this study. I'm so glad Global Read Aloud inspired us to spend so much time with Lauren Castillo's books. A huge thank you goes to Pernille Ripp for organizing such a great program that gets teachers and students excited to read and share.
