I Am a Story by Dan Yaccarino

I Am a Story by Dan Yaccarino; illustrated by Dan Yaccarino. 2016. India ink on vellum.

Brief summary: Story explains its history beginning with “I am a story. I was told around a campfire…” and continues going through the years of how people shared stories such as cave drawings, clay tablets, and up to electronic tablets.

Comments: This is a simple but important book that will teach students the timeline of story sharing. I would use this book as a springboard to also talk about how information is shared.
