Picture books, as a form of books combining pictures and texts, have played their unique advantages since entering the vision of educators, bringing the edifice of beauty to children and constructing the spiritual habitat for both children and adults. As a unique form of children's literature, picture books not only shine in the field of parent-child reading and preschool education but also show their unique value in the field of the primary school curriculum and teaching. At present, most teachers and experts focus on the cultivation of children's language ability and artistic aesthetic ability by picture books, while some picture books have more diversified educational values. The picture book "Sky High" created by Germano Zullo and Albertine who come from Switzerland shows us the process of two rich men competing to build tall buildings in the folio pages of the book. Its exquisite art and conception contains the connotation of architectural aesthetics as well as the significance of wealth value. We will take this as an example to further discuss and think about the teaching design of integrated courses of the picture book in primary schools from the aspects of teaching objectives, objects, process and methods, especially exploring the educational significance of picture books in language, mathematics, art and science, which can broaden the vision of picture book teaching and provide a theoretical and practical reference for front-line teachers and curriculum experts.
