Open Access Graduate Research Paper
This paper will discuss how picture books can offer children experiences with the graphic arts and how these experiences can nurture their emerging literacy. Then ways to implement the graphic arts, as part of the whole language concept, into an instructional program will be explored. Picture Books as a Base for Visual-Verbal Literacy Illustrations in picture books not only complement texts but, in many cases, extend their meaning. This verbal-visual collaboration can nurture children's emerging literacy.
