Product Description
Consider for a moment trying to teach a young student a factually based concept using only pictures and visual cues. It would be difficult at best, assuming the student had prior knowledge of the topic being explained, and near impossible if working with a student possessing little or no background experience with the information. Now imagine trying to tell a fictional story to that same student using nothing but pictures and visual cues. The task seems far less daunting. The purpose of this text set is to demonstrate that fictional literature does not necessarily require text and that pictures and illustrations can aid in comprehension by providing the reader with details beyond those conveyed with words alone. Several of the included texts were selected to help students understand that the choice of font can be particularly important in fictional literature where words themselves can become pictorial in nature. Finally, all of the books included in this text set have been selected to expose students to a variety of picture book illustrators and artistic styles.
