With the illustrations and text evident throughout picture books, one might suggest that they support creative thinking and the possibilities that it can model writing for Secondary students.

    What Exactly Can Picture Books Teach Our Children? I chose to read and comment on Barbara Kiefer’s “Envisioning Experience: The Potential of Picture Books.” Kiefer’s main point in writing this essay was to get the message across that children enjoy picture books that allow them to identify and make connections with the characters or the plots, and that while reading and analyzing the pictures, they gain a better sense of aesthetics and how to interpret them. I agree whole-heartedly with

    The Picture of Dorian Gray as a Moral Book The Picture of Dorian Gray was a remarkably well-written book due to the reaction of its themes by society.  In the preface of the novel, Wilde introduces the opinion that "...there is no moral or immoral book.  Books are well written or badly written.  That is all."  Numerous views can be taken upon this fastidious comment.  Many would agree that Wilde is justifiably correct because the preface was written with the intention that his readers understand

    Picture books can be seen as an easy read. It is something that needs to be easy in order for the children to understand the concepts, and be interested in listening to it. The ease of the picture book makes it difficult for people to look into the foundation of the book. There is a framework that someone might not see in the beginning of the story until they look into the bones of it. One of the most redeeming qualities is to “ensure..your story depth resonates with both the reader and the listener”

    This assignment will begin by defining and looking at the history of the postmodern picture book. It will examine what defines these books and how it combines text, images, and paratext creating a story which has meaning for both adults and children.

    There has been a lot of quarrels over the years about how children’s picture books are embracing traditions and presenting gender stereotypes. In an article I found, author Narahara May of “Gender Stereotypes in Children’s Picture Books,” discusses two major problems.
