Big Books for Little Readers
Enlarged Texts, or Big Books, allow groups of children to see and respond to the printed page and pictures of a story as they would during a one-on-one lap reading with an adult. The Big Books in this bibliography were selected based on appeal to the listed age group, usefulness for group sharing, quality of construction, and success of translation from small to large format. This reference explores: -- The shared reading experience -- Failure and successes of enlarging text and illustrations -- Practicalities of purchasing and using Big Books -- Ideas for activities using Big Books -- Patterns for suggested activities -- Sources for Big Books and a bibliography of selected Big Books
