April 4th is National School Librarian Day.  Let’s give librarians a round of applause and celebrate them with visual thinking.

When you think of a librarian, what image comes to mind.  Books pop into my mind.

Here is a quick lesson on how to draw a book in 5 easy steps.  Give it a shot.

Icons like this can help build your visual vocabulary.  Of course you can use this icon to draw tons of concepts.  For example a book can represent learning, school, teacher, research, and so much more.  And several books together can make a library!

Thanks for reading!  If you want to use visual thinking for your next project, conference, or strategy session, just contact me for ideas.
