  • Select picture books that will engage children
  • Develop your own techniques for drawing children into the stories
  • Enrich your reading time with the children in your care

Julie spent three years as Assistant Editor of Reading Time the journal of The CBCA and has reviewed for the journal since 1982. She is currently a judge in The CBCA Annual Book of the Year Awards in the Early Childhood category.
