What's in the Picture? by Janet Evans

Book Description

'The book will be of interest to anyone sharing pictorial texts with children, professionally or privately' - School Librarian 'The collection, like the texts it analyzes, is rich and variable and early years educators will have to be selective in the papers they concentrate on, but there are some gems to be found...It would appear that there are many things in the picture - this is an exciting start!' - TACTYC Illustrations are one of the most important cueing systems which children can draw on to help them make sense of print. This book covers many issues involved in using picture books: their role in early literacy; in intellectual and emotional development; their use as a learning resource; as an aid to aesthetic development; their use in extending children's thinking; and their role in developing reading skills. The meanings we attribute to texts are partly determined by the culture in which we have grown up, and by factors such as race, gender and class. A theme of this book is the interaction between what readers bring to a text; their response to a text, and the multi-layers of meaning in the text itself. What's in the Picture? includes contributions from leading writers in the field, as well as a unique interview with Anthony Browne, creator of Gorilla and other Browne books.
