Synopsis

Using Picture Storybooks to Teach Literary Devices Recommended Books for Children and Young Adults by Susan Hall

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.

Reviews

As the title suggests, picture storybooks are useful vehicles to teach literary devices. While this book will certainly appeal to teachers, students may also find it useful to help them understand these more difficult literary concepts.... This will be a good reference for your shelf. -Gale-Reference Reviews A useful tool for teachers in language arts programs in kindergarten through twelfth grade and for professional collections in public libraries and school library media centers. -VOYA ?A useful tool for teachers in language arts programs in kindergarten through twelfth grade and for professional collections in public libraries and school library media centers.?-VOYA ?As the title suggests, picture storybooks are useful vehicles to teach literary devices.
