LITERATURE FOR YOUNG CHILDREN.
LEWIS, CLAUDIA
THE QUALITIES WHICH MAKE STORYBOOKS AND PICTURE BOOKS APPEALING TO PRESCHOOL CHILDREN AND THOSE WHICH HELP THEM UNDERSTAND AND MASTER THE USES OF LANGUAGE ARE DISCUSSED BRIEFLY. DIFFERENT TYPES OF BOOKS THAT APPEAL TO PRESCHOOL CHILDREN ARE PRESENTED--BOOKS THAT ENCOURAGE THE HEALTHY EXPRESSION OF EMOTIONS, BOOKS THAT ENABLE THEM TO PARTICIPATE, BOOKS THAT PRESENT THE CONFLICTS AND FEELINGS CHILDREN EXPERIENCE AS THEY GROW, BOOKS THAT CONFIRM FOR THEM DAILY EXPERIENCES AND THEIR KNOWLEDGE OF THINGS, AND BOOKS LOVED BY YOUNG CHILDREN FROM ALL SOCIOECONOMIC LEVELS. A SPECIAL TYPE OF BOOK IS ONE THE TEACHER MAKES FOR OR WITH HER CHILDREN ABOUT ONE OF THEIR OWN CLASSROOM EXPERIENCES. THIS EXPERIENCE HELPS CHILDREN UNDERSTAND WHAT A BOOK IS AND HOW IT IS MADE AND THAT WORDS RELATE TO PEOPLE AND EVENTS. BIBLIOGRAPHIC DATA FOR THE BOOKS DISCUSSED ARE PROVIDED. THIS PAPER WAS PRESENTED AT THE NATIONAL COUNCIL OF TEACHERS OF ENGLISH CONFERENCE (HONOLULU, NOVEMBER 23-25, 1967). (NS)
