A story, a story : an African tale by Gail E Haley( Book )
53 editions published between 1970 and 1998 in 6 languages and held by 4,314 libraries worldwide
Many African stories are called "Spider stories". This book is about how that came to be. And it tells that long, long ago there were no stories on earth for children to hear. All stories belonged to Nyame, the Sky god. Ananse, the Spider man, wanted to buy some of these stories, so he spun a web up to the sky and went to bargain with the Sky god. The price the Sky god asked was Osebo, the leopard-of-the-terrible-teeth, Mmboro the hornet who-stings-like-fire and Mmoatia the fairy whom-man-never-see. This book is about how Ananse paid the price

7 editions published between 1992 and 1999 in English and held by 557 libraries worldwide
"A resource for media and visual literacy. With the assertion 'it's not what they watch, it's how they watch, ' authors Considine and Haley offer a strong rationale for 'visual literacy' programs in which students can develop the cognitive and viewing skills necessary in our media-dominated society. In this fascinating and astute examination of mass media and its effect on our culture, the authors offer a profound assessment of the problems and issues surrounding the communication revolution and give sound, practical solutions to those problems -- solutions for parents, for teachers, administrators, librarians, media specialists, and especially, solutions for children. Ideas, strategies, and activities that can be easily integrated into diverse areas of the existing curriculum promote critical thinking about the information students receive in a multimedia world and the daily decisions they make as consumers, whether selecting a product or a politician. Only when they have developed these abilities are they prepared for the world they live in. Some of the chapter titles are: Making the Living Room a Learning Room by Using TV (Television) Effectively; Advertising: Exploring the Consumer Culture in the Classroom; Reading the News: Interpreting Form and Content; and Movies as Mentors: Teaching with Motion Pictures

Imagine that : developing critical thinking and critical viewing through children's literature by David M Considine( Book )
3 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 289 libraries worldwide
With the proliferation of visual technologies and the growing interest in media literacy, this book offers educators important new teaching skills. Rich in strategies and activities, it links outstanding children's literature to the development of critical-viewing and critical-thinking skills. Activities show students how to locate, identify, and interpret iconic information contained in illustrations - particularly those in picture books, where illustrations often contain ideas not addressed in the text. Understanding the concepts related to image, text, story setting, content, theme, technique, medium or style, design, composition, and page layout helps students discern pictorial communication in advertising, television, and motion pictures. Well-grounded in research and theory, this work not only offers educators essential training in teaching media literacy skills, it will also appeal to students and faculty in schools of library science and colleges of education
