Product Description

Review

'Picturing Canada is a book that I will cherish because it has made me think about the books that I love and, perhaps even more importantly, about the children reading them. If, as I so deeply believe, that it is reading Canadian books that will tell us who we are as Canadians
then Picturing Canada is an essential tool that will guide us on the way.'

(Jeffrey Canton, Children's Studies Program, York University)

'Leafing through the pages of Picturing Canada, I find myself floored by just how much is packed into this history of Canadian children?s illustrated books—and their publishing history—from the 1700s to the present day. The book is academic analysis, book history, and thoughtful insight all in one: an objective look at the many styles of children?s writing and children?s illustration throughout numerous periods in Canada?s history.' (Tiffanie Ing, Canadian Booknews, vol33:02:2010)

‘This book would make an excellent text for college and university students studying the genre. It will also be of use to librarians who have an interest in the history of picture books and their authors. I would highly recommend it as a professional resource.’ (Victoria Pennell, Resource Links: Journal of Society for Canadian educational Resources: vol16:02:2010)

'A groundbreaking study of children's publishing in Canada and of the material conditions and cultural shifts that have informed the production of illustrated books and picture books. They offer much more than this, however: by alerting readers to the complex issues that surround textuality for children and young people, they suggest lines of inquiry and fields of research that will build on the foundational work carried out in this book.' (Clare Bradford; Jeunesse Young People, Texts, Cultures 3.1(2011))

'Picturing Canada is a welcome addition to the growing list of scholarly titles that demonstrate the centrality of book history to Canada's cultural history.' (Carole Gerson Canadian Historical Review; vol 92:02:2011)

‘This book will be invaluable for scholars in the field of Canadian children’s literature, cultural studies, and book history. It provides scholarly analysis of one of the most popular forms of reading instruction and entertainment that children will encounter in their formative years, and adds greatly to our understanding of how national awareness is gained through this medium.’
(Leslie McGarth , Papers of the Bibliographical Society of Canada vol49:01:2011)
