Challenging and Controversial Picturebooks Book Description:

It is often assumed that picturebooks are for very young readers because of their emphasis on the illustrations and their scarcity of text; however, there are increasing numbers of picturebooks where the age of the implied reader is questionable. These are picturebooks whose controversial subject matter and unconventional, often unsettling style of illustration challenge the reader, pushing them to question and probe deeper to understand what the book is about. In addition to the book challenging the reader, the reader often challenges the book in an attempt to understand what is being said. These increasingly popular picturebooks work on many different levels; they are truly polysemic and worthy of in-depth analysis. They push the reader to ask questions and in many instances are intrinsically philosophical, often dealing with fundamental life issues. Challenging and Controversial Picturebooks examines these unconventional, non-conformist picturebooks, considering what they are, their audience and their purpose. It also considers: Children’s and adults’ thoughts on these kinds of picturebooks. How challenging and unsettling wordless picturebooks can play with the mind and promote philosophical thought. What creates non-conformity and strangeness ... is it the illustrations and their style, the subject matter or a combination of both? Why certain countries create, promote and accept these picturebooks more than others. Why certain picturebooks are censored and what factors are in play when these decisions are made. The role of publishers in translating and publishing these picturebooks. Children’s creative and critical responses to strange, unsettling and often disturbing visual texts. This inspiring and thought-provoking volume explores the work of a number of highly respected, international picturebook experts and includes an exclusive interview with the legendary Klaus Flugge, Managing Director of Andersen Press, one of the few remaining independent children’s book publishers in England. It is an indispensable reference for all interested in or working with picturebooks, including researchers, students in higher and teacher education, English advisors/inspectors, literacy consultants and classroom teachers.

How to Raise a Chatterbox Book Description:

who likes to chat’. Isn’t that what we all want for our children? A love of language and talking? How to Raise a Chatterbox guides parents through the stages of speech and language development from age 0-5, providing information, strategies, and tips that will help children to learn to talk more easily and more confidently. The book discusses the reasons behind the advice and the research studies that support it so that parents can make an informed decision about which advice they choose to follow. The book includes hundreds of suggestions for games and activities. Parents don’t need to make any more time in their day; they can simply adapt daily activities such as getting dressed, eating meals, travelling in the car etc. Sandy has also included lots of games and activities that they can do with their child to give them an extra boost, if they have the time. Parents don’t need to buy any special materials; she gives suggestions of how household objects and simple toys can be used to make great speech and language activities. A child’s speech and language skills may be developing as parents would expect but they simply want them to be the best they can be before they start school; or parents may feel they are behind in certain areas and would like specific guidance to help them to catch up. This book is for all parents, grandparents and carers of pre-school children who want to make the most of those precious pre-school years that fly by, and that we now know give us the best opportunity to 'Raise a Chatterbox'.
