Nonsense, Sense and Science: Misconceptions and Illustrated Trade Books.
Owens, Caroline V.
Journal of Children's Literature, v29 n1 p55-62 Spr 2003
Examines the author's discovery of elementary students' science misconceptions derived from the books she chose to share as read-alouds. Identifies three intertwining elements that might have led intelligent, curious young learners to create impossible science from these read-aloud sessions. Uses these three elements to organize personal observations and recent research tying the presentation of illustrated trade books to young children's expressions of related science misconceptions.
