Inside Picture Books
Ellen Handler Spitz (au); Robert Coles (fr). Addresses such questions as: Why do picture book images shown to us as young children linger in our minds? How do picture books shape our lives early on & even later into adulthood? Classic picture books transmit psychological wisdom, convey moral lessons, shape tastes, & implant subtle prejudices. Each chapter discusses well-known childrenís books -- Goodnight Moon, Babar, Little Black Sambo, to name a few -- that deal with a theme of importance to young children. These include bedtime, separation, loss, & death; curiosity, disobedience, & punishment, & self-acceptance. Gives a new understanding of the meaning of picture books; also empowers adults to interpret & choose future cultural experiences for their children. Illus.
