When Is a Frog a Book or a Book a Frog?
Zeece, Pauline Davey
Early Childhood Education Journal, v36 n3 p275-279 Dec 2008
During early childhood, children adopt a design-based conception of books with increasing consistency. It is not clear if or how young children spontaneously identify the myriad of commercially produced, book-related props, toys, and other materials as support for their early literacy activities. Guidelines for evaluating these supplementary materials are presented and thirteen books are reviewed and recommended.
