This edited volume constitutes the first serious, sustained examination of the study of children’s books for children aged from 0 to 3 with contributions by scholars working in different domains and attempting to assess the recognition of the role and influence of children’s literature on the cognitive, linguistic, psychological and aesthetic development of young children. This collection achieves a balance between theoretical, empirical, historical and cross-cultural approaches by examining the broad range of children’s books for children under three years of age, ranging from early-concept books through wimmelbooks and ABC books for small children to picture books that support the young child’s acquisition of behavioral norms. Most importantly, the chapters proffer new insights into the strong relationship between children’s books for young children and emergent literacy, drawing on current research in children’s literature research, visual literacy, cognitive psychology, language acquisition, picture theory and pedagogy.

“This is a book to come back to and reflect on. It does not offer a lot of practical support to the practitioner but it does provide food for thought and a gateway into new ways of seeing and thinking. Through reading several papers in this book, I have been challenged to reconsider my view of books, and through other papers I found support for long-held beliefs from unexpected quarters. I would recommend this book to all who have an interest in emergent literacy.”
“This book offers an original and needed contribution to the emergent literacy field. It clearly explains various aspects of emergent literacy in relation to picturebooks, and it offers a valuable overview of picturebooks for very young children. It seems likely that this book will become a fundamental reference for all future research in the above mentioned fields.”
