The Highlights Foundation teams up with Rosemary Agoglia, senior educator of The Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art, to raise the bar on visual and verbal literacy. The Power of Picture Books: Links to Literacy and Learning workshop offers what educators have called “a life changing” professional development experience that uses the picture book to support literacy development alongside critical and creative thinking skills. The workshop includes guest appearances by illustrators E.B. Lewis and Lindsay Barrett George. The foundation’s workshops take place in the retreat center located at the ancestral farm of the founders of Highlight for Children. The retreat center complex, which combines rustic charm with modern amenities, is situated in the Pocono Mountains of Northeast Pennsylvania.
