Synopsis

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

Both volumes of Using Picture Storybooks to Teach Literary Devices make it easy to find the perfect book to illustrate a specific literary device. The author has selected nearly 500 picture storybooks that effectively illustrate satire, allusion, pun, imagery, paradox, simile, analogy, and other literary devices. A substantial portion of each volume is a detailed guide for finding appropriate examples. This guide is alphabetically arranged from Allegory to Understatement and describes the appropriate titles for each device. Volume 1 spans books from 1980 to 1988, and Volume 2 covers books published since 1989 as well as classic picture books. All entries include full bibliographic information, a plot summary, examples of the literary device, and other devices used in the book. Entries in Volume 2 indicate appropriateness of a title for older students, the art styles used in illustrations, and suggested curricular tie-ins.
