Picture books are both the first piece of art for a child and great opportunities to stimulate their imagination and creativity. However, more importantly, they insistently say that ‘Hope counts for everything.’ In this interactive online workshop, Melis Akdoğan Gündoğdu will share the reasons why picture books do even adults good and why classes should incorporate them by providing some examples. In addition, participants will discuss how picture books can be used in different classroom contexts from kindergarten to university with the help of hands-on practice.
