Summary

Summary

The third volume of Using Picture Storybooks to Teach Literary Devices joins volumes 1 and 2 of this best-selling series to give teachers and librarians the perfect tool to teach literary devices to students in grades K-12. In this volume, 120 well-reviewed picture storybooks, published mainly in the last few years, are listed (sometimes more than once) under 41 literary devices. All-ages picture storybooks, which can be enjoyed by adults, as well as children, are included. For each device, a definition is given, and descriptions of appropriate storybooks, with information on how to use them, the art style used in the book, and a curriculum tie-in, are provided. Among the literary devices included are alliteration, analogy, flashback, irony, metaphor, paradox, tone, and 34 more. Indexes by author, title, art style, and curriculum tie-in add to this outstanding book's great value. Grades 4-12.

School Library Journal Review

The value of using picture books beyond the primary grades is becoming more widely recognized. This excellent resource, the third in a series, helps librarians find those titles that teachers can use effectively with older students. The descriptions of the illustrators' art styles and techniques are helpful to anyone involved in discussing or reviewing picture books. The 41 literary devices are arranged alphabetically, from "Alliteration" to "Understatement." The 120 books included were published almost entirely between 1995 and 2000. Each entry includes publication information, a brief annotation, examples from the text highlighting the literary devices, a description of the art style, and curriculum tie-ins. Appendixes group the books by author, title, art style, and curricular area.-Lucinda Snyder Whitehurst, St. Christopher's School, Richmond, VA (c) Copyright 2010.

Choice Review

Volume three in the series, this book provides a detailed index to 120 picture storybooks published from 1995 to 2000. Focusing on the use of literary devices in storybooks, this index is organized under 41 alphabetically arranged literary devices. The chapters provide a definition for the featured device, an example of the device, and an alphabetical list of the storybooks featuring the literary device. Each storybook is cataloged with a bibliographic citation for the book, a story annotation, examples of the primary literary device featured in the book, other devices that may occur in the book, a discussion of the art style, and a curriculum tie-in. This volume would be particularly useful to preservice teachers and to practicing teachers wishing to enhance student reading and writing skills through a study of various literary devices. Good things come in small packages, and picture storybooks can be a wonderful way to bring students to such an understanding. There is a place for storybooks beyond the elementary classroom, and this text provides the documentation to support that belief. Well-researched and highly user-friendly, this book should be a ready reference for students in English, education, and middle and secondary content classrooms. A. W.
