Your colleagues have embraced Sue Hall's outstanding volumes as the ideal guides to using picture storybooks to introduce the importance and impact of literary devices in fiction. Why? Because both volumes of Using Picture Storybooks to Teach Literary Devices make it easy to find the perfect book to illustrate a specific literary device. The author has selected nearly 500 picture storybooks that effectively illustrate satire, allusion, pun, imagery, paradox, simile, analogy, and other literary devices. A substantial portion of each volume is a detailed guide for finding appropriate examples. This guide is alphabetically arranged from "Allegory" to "Understatement" and describes the appropriate titles for each device.
Volume 1 covers popular titles published between 1980 and 1988, and Volume 2 covers books published since 1989 as well as classic picture books. All entries include full bibliographic information, a plot summary, examples of the literary device, and other devices used in the book. Entries in Volume 2 indicate appropriateness of a title for older students, the art styles used in illustrations, and suggested curricular tie-ins.
