- Publisher's Summary
- 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.
