Picturebook pre-reading:

  • Take notice of the different houses on each page.

  • How much is for the kids - how much is for the parents?
  • How do you talk about the serious topics - that maybe shows bad behaviour?

Post-reading the picturebook

  • Negative - neutral - positive connotations
  • Modality
