Fascinating Children with Words through Tradebooks.
Burke, Eileen M.
Through careful selection of trade books, teachers can promote children's awareness of language. This paper cites numerous trade books that may be used to help children develop appreciation of alliteration, onomatopoeia, rhythm, and rhyme, and it recommends a number of alphabet books, animal stories, and books in which word meanings, interesting concepts, and word histories are explored. The books cited are those that have demonstrated appeal for children. (GW)
