January marked the highly-anticipated launch of Scholastic’s brand-new digital literacy resource, Read & Respond Engage.
The new series was unveiled to expectant crowds at the 2011 BETT Show in London by Children’s Laureate Anthony Browne. He explained the origin of his book, Gorilla, and then read it aloud to an appreciative audience. Anthony also spoke about the importance of picture books in engaging children, as young readers can spot clues in the pictures that ‘tell part of the story that the words don’t tell’.
