"Fresh Off the Press" interviews Miss Anessa Dorris, an educator for over three decades and former bookseller for the Blue Manatee Children's Bookstore. There is possibly no one else who more truly understands children's books, and the importance of a good children's book, than Miss Anessa. In fact, she only reads children's literature so she has a full understanding of every book available to better match a book with a student to help encourage a passion for reading within that child. What's more important in a children's book: A great story, or educational value? What is the impact that a book has on a young child? How are books utilized in the classroom, and how are things different with virtual learning for the foreseeable future? And why is representation in children's books so important? We discuss these topics and more in this CAN'T MISS episode of "Fresh Off the Press," presented by blue manatee press! This is the perfect episode for educators; parents dealing with virtual learning or looking to inspire healthy reading habits with their littles ones; librarians; and all other children's books enthusiasts!
