NYTimes: A Letter In Living Color

This is absolutely brilliant!!!! In response to the now famous New York Times article; 'Picture Books No Longer A Staple For Children', the NYTimes received a tube in the post containing a scrolled 15 foot letter from Birch Lane Elementary School in Davis, California. Having taken exception to the article, the school designated February as 'Love A Picture Book Month'.
"We believe that picture books are essential to the development of life-long readers and learners", say the children; and each child signed the letter personally, with hand prints as well as signatures.
I don't think there is anything I could add to that statement.
Follow the link below to view the scroll.... you HAVE to see this!!!!!
