People who can't stop drinking are called alcoholic. People who can't stop buying things are called shopholic. And I call myself - pictureobookholic for the reason that I can't stop buying picture books.
I think learning English through picture books is the most interesting way for young children. And I hope my work will always more or less relate to picture books telling.
I am trying to sort out of the picture books I have currently as I am getting confused with my collections. Got to get it done before moving to Hsin Chu so I can put them nicely in the bookshelf that Joe is going to prepare for me.

Every time when I read a picture book to my kids, I always have a goal to achieve, such as teaching new vocabulary, or certain concepts.
Today I read a picture book - The Crocodile and the Dentist to my Grade 1 kids. The story is simple and straightforward so I decided to spend more time on the vocabulary that I want to teach them.
Through the story, the kids leared these 3 words -

There are two things I am obsessed with - one is picture books and the other is bags. Unfortunately, both of them are costly and always cost me fortune.
I spent some time at the children's book department in 中友誠品店 last night. Too bad that I couldn't buy all the books I wanted last night so I could only take away some of them with me.
There is one picture book that when I saw it I wanted to buy it instantly coz it drew me back to my childhood memory. I can't remember where I saw it or who read it to me, but surely I want to have it so I can read it to my kids.

原本學校計劃好的戶外教學因為颱風的關係被取消了,只好臨時找另外一個同事和我幫孩子上課.所以今天上了八堂的story class. 雖然喜歡講故事,但是連續講了八堂課 我的喉嚨很不開心.
收藏的繪本裡有一本我好喜歡,喜歡到想要把它當作傳家之寶給他傳下去. 書名是 "The Diary of Hansel and Gretel". 它是由"糖果屋"的故事所改寫的一本立體書 (Pop-up Book).藉由Gretel寫日記的方式來敘述這個故事.孩子每次看到這本書都會很興奮,因為它是立體的, 所以對他們來說很稀奇.對於我,它不只是設計生動,還因為Gretel (妹妹)在改寫的故事裡聽起來"很大人",讓我覺得很有趣!
