Ginny Kruse’s Words of Wisdom

I just read this quote from an interview with Ginny Moore Kruse about her experience on the Charlotte Zolotow award committee (for the best picture book text).  She says: “Experience with language in a wide range of ways makes a huge difference for all babies and preschoolers’ facility with spoken language and with their emergent literacy. To develop to their greatest potential, young children must have opportunities to hear a variety of language patterns and words put together in a variety of ways.”  I wonder if she was thinking about Story Squad when she said this????
