Description: From School Library Journal
The value of using picture books beyond the primary grades is becoming more widely recognized. This excellent resource, the third in a series, helps librarians find those titles that teachers can use effectively with older students. The descriptions of the illustrators' art styles and techniques are helpful to anyone involved in discussing or reviewing picture books. The 41 literary devices are arranged alphabetically, from "Alliteration" to "Understatement." The 120 books included were published almost entirely between 1995 and 2000. Each entry includes publication information, a brief annotation, examples from the text highlighting the literary devices, a description of the art style, and curriculum tie-ins. Appendixes group the books by author, title, art style, and curricular area.

Product Description:
The third volume of Using Picture Storybooks to Teach Literary Devices joins volumes 1 and 2 of this best-selling series to give teachers and librarians the perfect tool to teach literary devices to students in grades K-12. In this volume, 120 well-reviewed picture storybooks, published mainly in the last few years, are listed (sometimes more than once) under 41 literary devices. All-ages picture storybooks, which can be enjoyed by adults, as well as children, are included. For each device, a definition is given, and descriptions of appropriate storybooks, with information on how to use them, the art style used in the book, and a curriculum tie-in, are provided. Among the literary devices included are alliteration, analogy, flashback, irony, metaphor, paradox, tone, and 34 more. Indexes by author, title, art style, and curriculum tie-in add to this outstanding book's great value.
