VITMs in Picture Books

As Picture Books with Very Important Teaching Moments (VITMs) seem to be all the rage these days, why don't we come up with some of our own? Here's what I pitched over at The Flux Blog:

"If You Know What's Good for You, Kid, You Won't Talk to Mommy Before Her Triple Tall Non-Fat Latte."

This Picture Book has everything. A Very Important Teaching Moment and potential for corporate sponsorship.

What would you contribute to the canon?


Are you interested in a great picture book with no Very Important Teaching Moment in sight? Then check out my review of Listen, Listen, by Phillis Gershator and illustrated by Alison Jay, up over at Book Buds.
