The Best Children’s Books and Picture-Books of 2014

The Best Children’s Books and Picture-Books of 2014 | Learning  and Libraries | Scoop.it

Indeed, books that bewitch young hearts and tickle young minds aren’t “children’s books” but simply great books — hearts that beat in the chest of another, even if that chest is slightly smaller.

This is certainly the case with the most intelligent and imaginative “children’s” and picture-books published this year. (Because the best children’s books provide, as Tolkien believed, perennial delight, step into the time machine and revisit previous selections for 2013, 2012, 2011, and 2010.)

These are wonderful reviews which would also make great exemplars of reviews of visual texts. Visual literacy is increasingly important in newer English curricula, but can be hard to work into courses.  Check your picture book collection and collaborate with your English department to create a short, discrete visual literacy/review assignment they could work between units.

Kinda wish I had known about this plug-in for Safari, Firefox and Chrome before I finished my master’s program. TLDR stands of “Too Long, Didn’t Read.”  The plugin uses Stermor's proprietary language heuristics engine, Liquid Helium, to summarize articles on the Web. The user can choose whether they want a short, medium or longer summary. Has anybody used it? Can you vouch for its accuracy?
