This story, the second on Lily, chronicles Jennifer Kronholm’s efforts to read with her daughter, as part of the 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten program at the Scoville Library in Salisbury.
Lily owns 68 picture books. We have read 34 of them. The other half may take a while to get through.
Turns out, all picture books are not created equal. Some are short, some are long. Some have bold, simple shapes while others feature lush illustrations. Some have sturdy, thick pages and others might as well be written on typing paper.
In short, some are baby-friendly and others are aimed at older children.
