Background: Various conversational contexts elicit stimulating parent–child interactions to a different degree. Shared reading, a scripted activity, is reported to elicit most abstract speech compared with other activities (e.g., toy play). Parental socioeconomic status (SES) is another key predictor of abstract talk. Shared reading can attenuate differences in abstract speech between SES groups. In the current study, we compared abstraction of parent–child interactions during nonscripted prompt...

Ten years ago Rotraut Susanne Berner provoked a scandal better known as the “Wimmel-Pimmel-Skandal”: The US publishing house Boyd Mills Press asked the German illustrator to retouch a small illustrated penis (0,75 cm). Berner refused. The “Winter-Wimmelbuch” (2003) was not published, and the artist stated that she wanted to stand up for freedom of speech. The Berner incident shows that it is theoretically possible to be subversive in the field of picture books or Wimmelbooks. But how critical an...

This chapter outlines an approach to interpersonal engagement and the intrusion of the self into the comics text which follows the structures outlined by Halliday in his systemic functional accounts of language. This is presented as a form of interactive ‘play’, borrowing some of the approaches to terminology, though not all of the commitments, used by Eric Berne (1967) in describing human interaction. The core interactions of language are presented conceptualised as a set of ‘games’ in which co...

To examine what kinds of parent–child interactions are elicited by different literacy-related activities, an exploratory study was conducted with 19 mother–child dyads. Although prompting boards are widely incorporated in pre- and primary school curricula, and in various family literacy programmes, scientific knowledge supporting their use is lacking. Within the context of the Dutch family literacy programme ‘Early Education at Home’ [Dutch Youth Institute. (2012). Early education at home. http:...

This essay deals with the notions of ›simplicity‹ and ›complexity‹ as well as ›accommodation‹ and ›transgression‹ with respect to child developments in language acquisition and literature acquisition. Focusing on the period of ›Early Literacy‹, it is argued that language development and children’s literature both start with simple patterns and gradually gain complexity. It is shown that children’s literature is a specific input in language acquisition which is accommodated to the needs of childr...

Growing scholarly interest in picturebooks requires a sound theoretical basis. While various seminal approaches to picturebook theory exist, the fundamental relatedness of picturebooks to the cognitive development of children has not been focused so far. In this article, it is argued that a cognitive theory of picturebooks is needed. Picturebooks, prototypically consisting of picture–text relations, are systematically engaged with the child's maturing cognitive abilities. In fact, picturebooks f...

Because of their prominent use of artistic illustrations, contemporary Flemish picture books have often been referred to as ‘‘aesthetic picture books’’ in Flanders. In this article, I will argue that the use of art and references to art by no means is a feature that is unique for contemporary Flemish picture books. The use of artistic allusions is only one of many characteristics that contemporary Flemish picture books share with what internationally has come to be described as ‘‘postmodern pict...
