This book describes the fascinating results of a two year study of children's responses to contemporary picturebooks. Children of primary school age, from a range of backgrounds, read and discussed books by the award-winning artists, Anthony Browne and Satoshi Kitamura. They then made their own drawings in response to the books. The authors found that children are sophisticated readers of visual texts, and are able to make sense of complex images on literal, visual and metaphorical levels. They are able to understand different viewpoints, analyse moods, messages and emotions, and articulate personal responses to picturebooks - even when they struggle with the written word. With colour illustrations, and interviews with the two authors whose books were included in the study, this book demonstrates how important visual literacy is to children's understanding and development. Primary and Early Years teachers, literacy co-ordinators and all those interested in children's literature will find this a captivating read.

This is an accessible guide to critical literacy, a process in which learners are encouraged to challenge and critique language and social practices and actively transform what they see as unjust or unfair. Crucial critical literacy concepts such as access, power, reconstruction and transformation are explored in respect of both the wider literature and as they relate to the experiences and practices of those educators who feature in the book. The key practice areas for developing children’s criticality are also covered, including the use of toys, children’s literature, comic books and graphic novels, photographs and new technologies. Threaded throughout the book are the intersecting social justice issues of gender, race, disability, displacement and social class. Material is drawn primarily from educators’ own narratives about transformative change in their practice – including their struggles to understand and enact critical literacy – alongside examples of their pedagogies for social change. The author identifies a number of clear directions for educators interested in using a critical pedagogical approach in their work with children and young people – helping them to understand what critical literacy is; how they can weave it into their own practices; with which ages, stages and grades critical literacy can be used; and how they can get started using critical literacy in their classrooms.

The Handbook of Research on Teaching Literacy Through the Communicative and Visual Arts, Volume II brings together state-of-the-art research and practice on the evolving view of literacy as encompassing not only reading, writing, speaking, and listening, but also the multiple ways through which learners gain access to knowledge and skills. It forefronts as central to literacy education the visual, communicative, and performative arts, and the extent to which all of the technologies that have vastly expanded the meanings and uses of literacy originate and evolve through the skills and interests of the young.

The picturebook is now recognized as a sophisticated art form that has provided a space for some of the most exciting innovations in the field of children’s literature. This book brings together the work of expert scholars from the UK, the USA and Europe to present original theoretical perspectives and new research on picturebooks and their readers. The authors draw on a variety of disciplines such as art and cultural history, semiotics, philosophy, cultural geography, visual literacy, education and literary theory in order to revisit the question of what a picturebook is, and how the best authors and illustrators meet and exceed artistic, narrative and cultural expectations. The book looks at the socio-historical conditions of different times and countries in which a range of picturebooks have been created, pointing out variations but also highlighting commonalities. It also discusses what the stretching of borders may mean for new generations of readers, and what contemporary children themselves have to say about picturebooks. This book was originally published as a special issue of the New Review of Children’s Literature and Librarianship.

This edited volume constitutes the first serious, sustained examination of the study of children’s books for children aged from 0 to 3 with contributions by scholars working in different domains and attempting to assess the recognition of the role and influence of children’s literature on the cognitive, linguistic, psychological and aesthetic development of young children. This collection achieves a balance between theoretical, empirical, historical and cross-cultural approaches by examining the broad range of children’s books for children under three years of age, ranging from early-concept books through wimmelbooks and ABC books for small children to picture books that support the young child’s acquisition of behavioral norms. Most importantly, the chapters proffer new insights into the strong relationship between children’s books for young children and emergent literacy, drawing on current research in children’s literature research, visual literacy, cognitive psychology, language acquisition, picture theory and pedagogy.

Was bringt eine Menschen dazu alles zurückzulassen, um eine Reise in ein unbekanntes, fernes Land anzutreten, hin zu einem Ort ohne Familie und Freunde, wo alles namenlos und die Zukunft unbekannt ist? Diese stumme Graphic Novel ist die Geschichte eines jeden Migranten, eines jeden Flüchtlings, eines jeden heimatlosen Menschen und eine Hommage an alle, die eben diese Reise angetreten haben. Der australische Autor und Illustrator Shaun Tan hat mit Ein neues Land eine wunderbare Geschichte geschaffen, die ganz ohne Worte auskommt. Als Leser schlüpft man in die Rolle des Emigranten, der seine Familie verlässt, um an einem fremden Ort ein neues Leben aufzubauen. Ohne Worte und Erklärungen ist man ganz den fantastisch anmutenden Zeichnungen ausgeliefert und fühlt sich ebenso fremd wie der Protagonist. Ein einzigartiges Leseerlebnis!
