Description : Edited by Peter Hunt, a leading figure in the field, this book introduces the study of children’s literature, addressing theoretical questions as well as the most relevant critical approaches to the discipline. The fourteen chapters draw on insights from academic disciplines ranging from cultural and literary studies to education and psychology, and include an essay on what writers for children think about their craft. The result is a fascinating array of perspectives on key topics in children’s literature as well as an introduction to such diverse concerns as literacy, ideology, stylistics, feminism, history, culture and bibliotherapy. An extensive general bibliography is complemented by lists of further reading for each chapter and a glossary defines critical and technical terms, making the book accessible for those coming to the field or to a particular approach for the first time. In this second edition there are four entirely new chapters; contributors have revisited and revised or rewritten seven of the chapters to reflect new thinking, while the remaining three are classic essays, widely acknowledged to be definitive. Understanding Children’s Literature will not only be an invaluable guide for students of literature or education, but it will also inform and enrich the practice of teachers and librarians.

Description : Praise for the first edition: 'This is a great practical textbook which provides an in-depth exploration of behaviour in a very comprehensive and clear structure. The book is rich in resources, ideas, planning and specialised materials related directly to meaningful theory. A wonderful guide for young inexperienced students as well as experienced practitioners.' Dr Eleni Kanira, Senior Lecturer in Early Childhood, Birmingham City University This book will provide you with a blend of practical ideas and underpinning theory about how children learn patterns of behaving. This book will enable you to consider realistic expectations for different age groups, the likely perspectives of children, and will guide you to deal with children whose behaviour is experienced as challenging. Understanding Children's Behaviour highlights the importance of sustained, personal relationships with children and of effective partnership between the adults in their life. Discussion of both theory and practice focuses on the practitioner's role in supporting the development of pro-social behaviour. This book is part of Jennie Lindon's series 'Linking Theory and Practice' series. The established approach provides accessible descriptions of relevant theory and research, yet links this information closely to best practice with children and their families. The content and style of the series has been developed to support students on Early Childhood degree programmes, Early Years Foundation Degree courses, practitioners working towards Early Years Professional Status and also experienced senior practitioners extending their professional development and that of their team.

Description : My circle book is an electronic children’s book for tablets/IPad and computer/Mac. It’s a picture book, made of photographs, aimed towards the youngest children aged 0-4. My circle book is part of a series of picture books, made by Kids books AS. All the books in this series aim to stimulate children’s imagination and expand their understanding of the world. In a fun way the children can explore different words and concepts in their everyday life, and through play and dialogue they can develop their language and listening skills and prepare for their understanding of the written word. Studies show that parents who point out words and letters to their children as they read aloud boost the youngsters' reading skills when they are older. The parents can also expand the child’s understanding of a word/concept by pointing at the photograph and saying the word out loud. After a while the child itself will imitate the word and grasp the understanding of the concept. The photographs in the books are colorful and recognizable and they have the written word attached to it. My circle book has photographs (with the written word) of different everyday objects which has the shape of a circle. By studying the photos and talking about the objects and their circular shape the child develops an understanding of circles and that many objects in our surroundings has this shape. Monica Andresen (born 1970) and Wenche Johnsen (born 1972) graduated respectively as master in special education and master in business and administration. Both have particular interest in children’s books and photography. With this series of digital picture books the authors want to put focus on several themes and concepts important for children’s development. The photographs are taken by the authors themselves, with the aim that the photos are clear, colorful and recognizable for the children.

Description : This book allows philosophers, literary theorists, and education specialists to come together to offer a series of readings on works of children’s literature. Each of their readings is focused on pairing a particular, popular picture book or a chapter book with philosophical texts or themes. The book has three sections—the first, on picturebooks; the second, on chapter books; and the third, on two sets of paired readings of two very popular picturebooks. By means of its three sections, the book sets forth as its goal to show how philosophy can be helpful in reappraising books aimed at children from early childhood on. Particularly in the third section, the book emphasizes how philosophy can help to multiply the type of interpretative stances that are possible when readers listen again to what they thought they knew so well. The kinds of questions this book raises are the following: How are children’s books already anticipating or articulating philosophical problems and discussions? How does children’s literature work by means of philosophical puzzles or language games? What do children’s books reveal about the existential situation the child reader faces? In posing and answering these kinds of questions, the readings within the book thus intersect with recent, developing scholarship in children’s literature studies as well as in the psychology and philosophy of childhood.

Description : This book offers a variety of approaches to children's literature from a postcolonial perspective that includes discussions of cultural appropriation, race theory, pedagogy as a colonialist activity, and multiculturalism. The eighteen essays divide into three sections: Theory, Colonialism, Postcolonialism. The first section sets the theoretical framework for postcolonial studies; essays here deal with issues of "otherness" and cultural difference, as well as the colonialist implications of pedagogic practice. These essays confront our relationships with the child and childhood as sites for the exertion of our authority and control. Section 2 presents discussions of the colonialist mind-set in children's and young adult texts from the turn of the century. Here works by writers of animal stories in Canada, the U.S. and Britain, works of early Australian colonialist literature, and Frances Hodgson Burnett's A Little Princess come under the scrutiny of our postmodern reading practices. Section 3 deals directly with contemporary texts for children that manifest both a postcolonial and a neo-colonial content. In this section, the longest in the book, we have studies of children's literature from Canada, Australia, Africa, the Caribbean, and the United States.

Description : This volume presents an innovative approach to the psychological study of children’s developing conceptions of pictures, drawings, and art.It brings together current theory and research on children’s developing understanding and production of pictures, drawings, and art. With contributions from leading international scholars, it is the first book to focus explicitly on children’s knowledge and interpretations of pictorial representations, including their understanding of the roles of the artist and the viewer. It addresses what children of different ages know about the nature of pictures as representations of the world, as intentional communications conceived of by artists, and as esthetic objects, as well as what children of different ages understand about the different ways to depict objects and scenes. The contributions discuss how children know what for them or for others is easy or difficult to draw, what they know about the strategies or aids for making a “good” drawing, the kinds of drawings and art they prefer, as well as their basis for making esthetic judgments and evaluating the quality of a drawing and individual style.Knowledge of how children think about pictures and of their metacognitive abilities will deepen our understanding of the drawings they produce and, more importantly, provide valuable insights into children’s comprehension of the many forms of graphic representation that are part of contemporary culture.
