Choosing books to use everyday may seem simple, but when you give LOTS OF THOUGHT to the process, you create “windows” or “mirrors” (Sims, Bishop) for children to make connections to the world around them. Windows allow children to activate their prior knowledge (what experiences they have had) and make new connections to the world around them. Mirrors allow a child to reflect on their world and “mirror literature” should reflect the experiences a child has on a daily basis in their home and neighborhood.
