Picture Book Vs Chapter Book

The question has been raised whether a picture book would do for the GRA Project?  My initial answer is no since the concept is to share this experience over several weeks, rather than just a single day.  However, this is not just my project so please add your voice to the debate in the comments below.  Thanks!
