  • Editorial
    • Abstract: I recently attended a picturebooks conference where one of the presentations was about picturebooks without pictures—picturebooks that had been turned into audiobooks, that is. Of course, audiobooks can be used with illustrations, simply as reading support. The book can still be there, illustrations and all. But the focus of this presentation was when the audiobook is what you have and where there is no visual content, only an “invisible” yet audible picturebook.An underlying rationale for invisible picturebooks is to give blind children access to stories that they would otherwise be barred from experiencing. Another reason is that such audio-only versions have their uses with seeing children as well, for instance ... Read More

  • Stories of the Ainu: The Oldest Indigenous People in Japanese
           Children’s Literature
    • Abstract: The Ainu are Japan’s oldest indigenous people, and they have survived and maintained their culture from the Late Paleolithic Period through today. The Ainu lifestyle has only partially survived due to difficulties caused by their patriarchal suppression in Japan, where the Ainu were racially excluded and forced by the government to assimilate to Japanese language and culture. The Ainu people were treated as an internally-colonized native population, and they were subjugated by the Japanese government (Heinrich 95). In 2007, the UN General Assembly passed the Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples. A year later, the Japanese government formally recognized the Ainu (which means “human” in their native ... Read More

  • José Vasconcelos Classical Readings for Children and the making of
           childhood in post-revolutionary Mexico
    • Abstract: During the 1910s, Mexico went through a complex process of changes widely known as the “Mexican Revolution,” which resulted in a deep transformation of political and cultural groundings of what was understood as a “national project.” It began as a civil war against the reelection of the dictator Porfirio Diaz, whose authoritarian administration was prolonged for over thirty years. Nevertheless, for many of the different people that took part of the movement, it represented the chance for rebuilding a new nation by vindicating their long ignored identities and needs. In fact, there was not one singular “Mexican Revolution” but many revolutionary projects that violently collided. Hence, the hardest part of the ... Read More

  • Australian University Students Reading Francophone Picturebooks—An
           Original Study
    • Abstract: Research has shown that children’s literature is sometimes used in the teaching and learning of foreign languages at tertiary level (see Maizonniaux; O’Sullivan/Rösler). When a book is intended for a particular national readership in that readership’s original language, however, transferring it to another culture inevitably raises questions about how it will be received, to what extent it will be accepted, and with what understanding it will be interpreted and read. Although some language practitioners and researchers report positive results with students who are still in the early stages of learning the target language, no research so far provides detailed information about university students’ actual reception ...

  • Beyond the Bedtime Story: In Search of Epistemic Possibilities and the
           Innovative Potential of Disquieting Picturebooks
    • Abstract: Literature for children has the power to both reveal and transform—to make new kinds of knowledge about and action in the world possible. As an educator, I am always in search of picturebooks that embody this potential in unique and interesting ways and am always honing my intentions in a landscape of text that is as vast and varied as our ideologies of childhood. Speaking to the complexity of this landscape, Kimberly Reynolds argues that children’s literature is a “curious and paradoxical space,” a space that is “simultaneously highly regulated and overlooked, orthodox and radical, didactic and subversive.” While twentieth century children’s literature emerged largely out of the desire for a protective space for ...

  • Postcards
    • Abstract: In two charming tales from a Swedish author, Detective Gordon, a very wise toad and Chief of Police in the forest, must solve mysteries. In the first book, Detective Gordon helps a squirrel find his missing hoard of nuts. During his investigation, Gordon finds Buffy, a mouse who has no family or place to live. Thus, an assistant position is created for Buffy, who is willing and ready for sleuthing. In the second mystery, the entire forest is unhappy because of an unidentified bully, and it is up to Detective Gordon and Buffy to put an end to it, because in the forest, “It is permitted to be nice but forbidden to be nasty.”As Buffy becomes part of the Police family, she develops a true friendship with Detective ...

  • Livres sans Paroles: Lampedusa à Montolieu: IBBY Italia’s Silent

    • Abstract: Lampedusa’s first silent picturebooks collection was at the heart of a recent IBBY UK/IBBY France/IBBY Italia project. Created almost by accident, it moved at a whirlwind pace, surprising all those involved and instigating much pedagogical cross-cultural co-operation. Livres sans Paroles: Destination Lampedusa was set up in the small book-town of Montolieu, in the south of France, as the theme for its 2016 festival of children’s literature. This short article will briefly outline the rationale for setting up the project; focus on the selection of books for each of the three classes in Montolieu’s primary school; describe how a few of the books were used in the classrooms and library; mention the involvement of the ...

  • Children Creating Their Own Books
    • Abstract: The year 2017 will be the 40th anniversary of a free competition that was inaugurated in 1977 by the Western Australia Branch of The Children’s Book Council of Australia (CBCA) and from the outset was held in conjunction with the national Children’s Book Week. While there have been many other writing competitions for children, both nationally and statewide, the Make Your Own Story Book competition (MYOSB) was unique to Western Australia until 2015, when the Australia Capital Territory CBCA Branch instituted a similar competition.Children are invited to work alone, or in pairs, to write and illustrate their own story to be submitted in a sturdy format suitable for inclusion in a library. The work must be original ... Read More

  • Russian postcard-review contest on contemporary books for children and
           young adults
    • Abstract: In the winter of 2016, the Laboratory of Socio-Cultural Educational Practices (at the Moscow State Teachers Training University) held the first postcard-review contest on contemporary books for children and young adults in Russia. The postcard-review is a little contemplation, inspired by a book, revealing its characteristics, and it should fit on an A6 size card (up to 1800 characters). It is well-known to librarians and publishers, but it is a completely new genre for teachers and young readers. The objectives of the contest were to inform teachers about the postcard-review genre as another good way of distributing information among professional readers about new and interesting books for children and young ...

  • Shôkokumin Sensô Bunkashi [Little Citizens: A History Of Wartime
           Children’s Culture] by Hisashi Yamanaka (review)
    • Abstract: This in-depth, scholarly study of children’s culture during WWII Japan is by Yamanaka Hisashi1 (1931), better known in Japan as the pioneering postwar author of many realistic children’s books like Pochi, the Red Dog (Akage no Pochi, 1960). Alongside writing for children, Yamanaka has also penned nonfiction dealing with the militaristic education he experienced as a child in wartime Japan, such as the series that began in 1974 with We Little Citizens (Bokura shôkokumin). His previous scholarly works on related subjects include Wartime Children’s Literature (Senji jidô bungakuron, 2011), a penetrating, unprecedented study of how some of Japan’s most representative children’s authors—Ogawa Mimei (1882-1961), Hamada ...

  • Erster Weltkrieg: Kindheit, Jugend Und Literatur (Deutschland,

           Ewers (review)
    • Abstract: This volume—marking the centenary of WWI—unites scholarly essays in German and English on juvenile war literature, including picture books about the First World War and children’s books published between 1914 and 1918 in all involved countries, as well as later and contemporary young adult novels about the war. The contributions focus on the different ways of representing WWI in European literature for children, on the possible impact of these representations, and on the largely unexplored field of information and media culture of children and adolescents in times of war. Most of the eighteen contributions are based on talks given at the international conference “1914/2014 – World War I, Childhood and Youth in ... Read More

  • The Sino-Japanese War and Youth Literature: Friends and Foes On The
           Battlefield by Minjie Chen (review)
    • Abstract: This book by Minjie Chen, librarian at the Cotsen Children’s Library of Princeton University, is a reworked version of her doctoral dissertation, defended at the School of Library and Information Science, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 2010. It is a comparative study of representations of the Sino-Japanese War (1937-1945), of the experiences of people of Chinese descent in the United States during WWI in Chinese and American books for young readers, and of the personal memories of Chinese witnesses to history.It is the first monograph in a Western language to address this important chapter of history. The many recent books for children and young adults published in China on the Sino-Japanese War ... Read More

  • Cinderella Across Cultures: New Directions And Interdisciplinary
           Perspectives ed. by Martine Hennard Dutheil de la Rochère, Gillian
           Lathey, and Monika Woźniak (review)
    • Abstract: The foreword to Cinderella across Cultures observes that the contents “collectively provide new insights into contextualizing, retelling and reimag(in)ing Cinderella, and, though they wisely do not aim for a global survey, they do engage cultural traditions that, while remaining rooted in a Euro-American context, decenter the Basile-Perrault-Grimms-Disney genealogy” (Bacchilega xiii). The volume delivers quite well on this promise. A study of the Cinderella narrative no longer confined to folkloristics, it draws from fields as diverse as cultural and media studies, queer theory, translation studies, and museum studies. The essays are, indeed, exclusively devoted to Euro-American productions of the narrative ... Read More

  • Learning From Picturebooks: Perspectives From Child Development and
           Literacy Studies ed. by Bettina Kümmerling-Meibauer et al. (review)
    • Abstract: With chapter contributors coming from fields such as developmental psychology, optometry and vision science, early-years education, clinical linguistics, international children’s literature, multimodal literacy, linguistics, philosophy, and preschool education—this scholarly work is a compendium of interdisciplinary approaches which looks into how children acquire language as well as develop cognitive, emotional, and emergent literacy skills through picturebooks. While it runs the risk of appearing like a hodge-podge of disconnected studies with such a wide variety of disciplines gathered together in one text, the editors have done a remarkable job of structuring each chapter in such a way that the core connecting ...

  • Children as Readers In Children’s Literature: The Power of Texts And The
