The International Board of Books for Young People (IBBY) presents a collection by scholars of children's literature about outstanding story and picture books that explore issues of identity, belonging and empathy in many parts of the world. The books discussed are as original and exciting in form as they are in content, developing children's literacies while widening their horizons. The Foreword is by Wally De Donker, IBBY President, and the book features Cao Wenxuan's acceptance speech for the Hans Christian Andersen Award 2016, in which he likens children's books to "another form of housebuilding."

The Routledge Handbook of Translation and Education will present the state of the art of the place and role of translation in educational contexts worldwide. It lays a sound foundation for the future interdisciplinary cooperation between Translation Studies and Educational Linguistics. By adopting a transdisciplinary perspective, the handbook will bring together the various fields of scholarly enquiry and practice that make a valuable contribution to enlarging the notion of translation and diversifying its uses in education. Each contribution provides an overview of the historical background to a given educational setting. Focusing on current research approaches and empirical findings, this volume outlines the development of pedagogical approaches, methods, assessment and curriculum design. The handbook also examines examples of pedagogies that integrate translation in the curriculum, the teaching method’s approach, design and procedure as well as assessment. Based on a multilingual and applied-oriented approach, the handbook is essential reading for postgraduate students, researchers and advanced undergraduate students of Translation Studies, and educationalists and educators in the 21st century post-global era.

As editors of Books, Media, and the Internet, David Booth, Carol Jupiter, and Shelley S. Peterson present the work of colleagues from the conference “A Place for Children’s Literature in the New Literacies Classrooms,’ April 2008. Within these pages, teachers, librarians, and others concerned with literacy will find inspiration and strategies for melding technology and children’s literature from practitioners who have found effective ways to engage young people with text, both in print and on screen. The contributors to this anthology include classroom teachers, librarians, university educators, and journalists. They speak not only to the technologically capable and media-savvy teachers but also to the curious, who seek starting points for using new technologies alongside traditional print media in their classrooms. They show how multimedia and digital technologies expand our approaches to literacy education -- and how to extend and enrich our use of stories, whatever the media, with all ages. Their articles cover a vast range of subjects arranged into 5 sections. This book provides current information, classroom examples, and anecdotes as practical tools to help teachers use digital, media, and print texts to extend students’ learning. The helpful “Teaching Tools” section at the end of the book explains how to use a variety of digital tools in the classroom.

The bulk of the world's population is multilingual, and one in seven Americans speak a language other than English at home. Multilinguals crave answers to question both basic and profound, questions relating to linguistic identity, schools, multiliteracy, how languages are actually learned, and why there are so many variations on individual success. Tokuhama-Espinosa combines solid research, humor, and real-life examples into 21 informative and entertaining essays about people who experience the world with multiple languages. This book tackles common misconceptions about polyglots (too many languages can cause brain overload, some languages are easier to learn than others, an adult cannot learn a foreign language as fast as a child, etc.) Other topics include: Curriculum choice Teaching languages using the multiple intelligences How different education systems can influence multilingual skills Language's relationship to mental tasks such as music and math Languages from the womb and bilingualism from birth The growth of the trilingual family The societal situation of third culture kids (those growing outside of their parents' native country) A special case for foreign language development The emerging cross-area study of multilingualism and cosmopolitanism Questions of linguistic identity Challenges to normal foreign language learning, such as dyslexia, Downs Syndrome, and deafness"
