Ignite: Life Lessons of a Children’s Librarian

2 Sep

Tonight I am speaking at an event called Ignite Boulder. Ignite’s a cool idea, with a cool format: each speaker gets 5 minutes to talk about the topic of their choice, with 20 slides that automatically advance every 20 seconds.

The title of my talk is: “Everything I need to know I learned from preschoolers and picture books: Life lessons of a children’s librarian.” Much of the content comes from the stories I’ve told on this blog – and therefore, from the preschoolers themselves and the picturebooks I’ve shared with them.

I’m nervous, but excited. My speech includes mentions of a bunch of picture books, so I wanted to post a bibliography here in case anyone who saw the talk wants to find them again (they’re all awesome books, by the way!):
