Picture Books: An Annotated Bibliography with Activities for Teaching Writing. [Fifth Edition.]
This book presents bibliographic annotations of 202 picture books and 53 activities for teaching writing. The first part of the book is arranged alphabetically by author within categories of six traits of writing in the analytical assessment model: ideas and content (clarity and focus, rich and vivid details, and a clear sense of purpose), organization (enticing lead, strong transitions with easy-to-follow sequencing, and a powerhouse conclusion), voice, word choice, sentence fluency, and conventions. Picture books annotated in the bibliography were published between 1976 and 1997. The second part of the book is a collection of teaching activities and lessons organized by trait as well. Contains three general references and two web pages as a start to "surf the net" for other resources. (RS)
