Misbehavior Is A Must: Unruly Picture Books For Our Times

How can picture books show young readers when it's okay to disobey?

Launching here at ALAMW, Noodlephant (Enchanted Lion Books) is a book about a noodle-loving elephant who pushes back against unfair laws, with messages about hospitality, creative resistance, and community action.

Join author Jacob Kramer and illustrator K-Fai Steele for a reading and a vibrant discussion about how picture books can scaffold critical thinking about authority, power, and compliance, and about how we can offer a joyful way to engage children in the remaking of our world.
