Both volumes of Using Picture Storybooks to Teach Literary Devices make it easy to find the perfect book to illustrate a specific literary device. The author has selected nearly 500 picture storybooks that effectively illustrate satire, allusion, pun, imagery, paradox, simile, analogy, and other literary devices. A substantial portion of each volume is a detailed guide for finding appropriate examples. This guide is alphabetically arranged from Allegory to Understatement and describes the appropriate titles for each device. Volume 1 spans books from 1980 to 1988, and Volume 2 covers books published since 1989 as well as classic picture books. All entries include full bibliographic information, a plot summary, examples of the literary device, and other devices used in the book.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"As many middle and high school teachers are finding out, picture books are invaluable resources for teaching literary devices to older students.... While the biggest difficulty in using these books is figuring out which titles to use, Hall has gone a long way to solving that problem with this series.... This book will also be useful to teachers and librarians interested in teaching visual literacy, as one of the indexes lists titles by artistic style and technique. Titles are also indexed by author, title, and curriculum area. Literally a gold mine, I highly recommend this title and look forward to the next volume."-School Library Journal
"An excellent addition to the reference collection of any school or public library."-Voice of Youth Advocates
