Children Reading Pictures has made a huge impact on teachers, scholars and students all over the world. The original edition of this book described the fascinating range of children's responses to contemporary picture books, which proved that they are sophisticated readers of visual texts, and are able to make sense of complex images on literal, visual and metaphorical levels.
Through this research the authors found that children are able to understand different viewpoints, analyse moods, messages and emotions, and articulate personal responses to picture books - even when they struggle with the written word.
With colour illustrations, new data from the original research, updates on new critical work on picture books, and reflections on the impact the original edition has had on the day-to-day practice of those who used it in the classroom, this book demonstrates and explores how vital visual literacy is to children's understanding and development of the world.
Featuring exclusive interviews with the Anthony Browne and Satoshi Kitamura, the two authors whose books were included in the study, Primary and Early Years teachers, literacy co-ordinators and all those interested in children's literature will find this a captivating read.
