As you read, talk together about the connections between the words of the book and its illustrations, graphs, photographs, even layout and colors. Would changing the visual appearance of the book make it have a different impact? If you only heard the book but never saw it, would that make a difference? As you start a new book together, try having one person read a portion aloud before allowing you to actually see the book. When you see the book, how is it different from what you imagined? Would you have designed a different appearance for this book?
