Just a follow up to my last post…
Love this statement Peter Catalonotto makes in his bio:
I believe a good book doesn’t explain everything. It’s a springboard, an open door and it gives readers some space to make their own choices and connections. To laugh. To cry. To be affected.
He certainly opens the door to a great discussion with Emily’s Art. I also found this Guideline for Philosophical Discussion which includes fabulous conversation starters. In fact this website is an incredible resource for other children’s stories that contain powerful messages.
