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. Grades 4-12.
