Adult Workshop 

The Whole Book Approach - FULLY BOOKED
Discover the difference between reading to children and reading with children! The Whole Book Approach, developed by former Eric Carle Museum educator Megan Lambert, is designed to give educators, parents, and caregivers the tools to evaluate the picture book as an art form and to encourage the critical engagement of children during picture book reading experiences. Workshop runs from 1:00 to 4:00 p.m. 

Cape Ann Reads is a collaborative effort between the Cape Ann Museum, Sawyer Free Library, Manchester-by-the-Sea Public Library, TOHP Burnham Public Library and Rockport Public Library to offer a year of free picture book themed workshops for families and adults to encourage community creativity, regional collaboration and family literacy through picture books.

This program is supported in part by a grant from the Gloucester Cultural Council, a local agency which is supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency and by the Harbortown Cultural District and the Friends of the Sawyer Free Library.
