About this title


It has been proved time and time again that the development of children's literacy is a major factor in their future success. In that regard, those who teach or intend to teach our youth will most certainly find Growing Up with Literature one of the most important texts they ever study. The student will find practical, invaluable information about children's books and how and why these books are so important for literacy development. They will be better prepared to develop children's early literacy capabilities through the knowledge gained on planning reading sessions; using technology to enhance multiple literacies; storytelling; using stories to deal with problems (bibliotherapy); integrating picture books into the rest of the curriculum; and using puppets and theater as extensions. The text is a tremendous resource for selecting appropriate pieces of literature as it features a comprehensive list of the best children's picture books published in the last half-century, with an emphasis on the most up-to-date publications. Learn the role each genre of literature plays in literacy development, including fiction, nonfiction, fables, fairy tales, poetry, biographies, historical fiction, folk tales and ABC and counting books. The author draws on his many years as an educator to detail planning strategies that will ensure success, as well as integration strategies that make for an easy fit with any curriculum.
