Abstract

There are very few studies on the impact of books and picture books on children under the age of 3 years. Picture books and stories have a great influence on young minds in terms of developing a sense of literacy and a love for reading. Emergent Literacy looks at how we know what very young children between the ages of 10 months and 3 years learn by looking at pictures in a picture book with someone or by listening to a story from a children’s book? What are the mental prerequisites that enable such learning processes? These are also the main questions in the emergent literacy research today. The chapters in this book are revised versions of papers presented at an international conference held at the Picture book museum Burg Wissem in Troisdorf near Cologne, Germany in March 2009.
