Recognizing pictures
        ...and why it's important
Illustration by Andrea Elovson, from The Kindergarten Survival Handbook Children are not really expected to be able to read or write before they start school. But much of what children learn all through school involves pictures of many kinds. Before starting school, it's important that children understand that photographs and drawings in books, magazines, and newspapers can stand for real things, and that real things can be shown in books by drawings and photographs.
