Picture Books That Teach Language: An Annotated Booklist.
Gerstein, Leonore, Comp.
This annotated booklist for parents and child caregivers is intended as a guide for using picture books to help children develop language skills. It differs from other lists which emphasize learning to listen; here the purpose is to facilitate talking. Each listed title is followed by a description of how the book might be used to teach a specific language structure (such as pronouns) or kind of vocabulary. Content of the entries, while seen as a matter of secondary importance, was judged to be of high quality. Entries marked with an asterisk are slightly more difficult and advanced than those not marked in this manner. (RH)
