Summary

Teachers and parents will be better skilled at developing children?s early literacy capabilities through the knowledge they will gain about planning reading sessions; using technology to enhance multiple literacies; storytelling; using stories to deal with problems (bibliotherapy); integrating picture books into other areas of learning and using puppets and theater as extensions. A list of the best children?s picture books from the last half-century, with an emphasis on the most-up-to-date publications makes this a resource on which every parent and educator of children birth to eight years of age should rely.
