BTC: Big Books

Finding Big Books in the Ballenger Teachers Center (BTC)

What is a Big Book?

Big Books are large format picture books. They can be either fiction or non-fiction. Some are written especially for the Big Book format and others are books that are first published in a traditional format and then published in large format for instructional purposes. Big Books are particularly effective when reading to young children because students at the back of a group can see the pictures, and the pictures are larger and more engaging. 

Where are the Big Books Located?

The Big Books are located at the North end of the Ballenger Teachers Center near the stairs and lounge seating.
