Essay from the year 2012 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Literature, grade: 1,0, Humboldt-University of Berlin (Institut für Anglistik & Amerikanistik), course: SE Writing the Term Paper, language: English, abstract: Babette Cole's Princess Smartypants is a young woman who has, according to her mother, reached the age at which she is ready for marriage. This typical fairytale theme of a young princess is contradicted and overthrown constantly by Princess Smartypants' character throughout the whole story – she seems, dresses, appears and behaves more like a child than a lady, favours pet monsters over men and tends to have more fun playing around than being responsible or at least behaving according to the position she is put into. It seems that for her, this childlike lifestyle is the key to living “happily ever after” in a world such as hers - one of responsibility - and that she stands for the message that the child inside is what leads to happiness if lived to the full with devotion. This paper aims to elaborate on this thesis and its proof given in several elements of the children's story.

How Picturebooks Work is an innovative and engaging look at the interplay between text and image in picturebooks. The authors explore picturebooks as a specific medium or genre in literature and culture, one that prepares children for other media of communication, and they argue that picturebooks may be the most influential media of all in the socialization and representation of children. Spanning an international range of children's books, this book examine such favorites as Curious George and Frog and Toad Are Friends, along with the works of authors and illustrators including Maurice Sendak and Tove Jansson, among others. With 116 illustrations, How Picturebooks Work offers the student of children's literature a new methodology, new theories, and a new set of critical tools for examining the picturebook form.

Women today seek encouragement and affirmation as they confront their own questions, doubts, and fears about womanhood. In Fearlessly Feminine, author Jani Ortlund supplies much-needed answers, calling Christian women to be joyfully confident in who they are before God, to welcome the privilege of womanhood, and to show the world the beauty of Christian femininity for God's glory. Tackling such sensitive subjects as submission and materialism, feminism and beauty, motherhood and marriage, Ortlund leads women to a deeper understanding of scriptural teaching and helps them fearlessly embrace all that God would have them become.

" Explores the historical rise of the literary fairy tale as genre in the late seventeenth century. In his examinations of key classical fairy tales, Zipes traces their unique metamorphoses in history with stunning discoveries that reveal their ideological relationship to domination and oppression. Tales such as Beauty and the Beast, Snow White and the Seven Dwarves, and Rumplestiltskin have become part of our everyday culture and shapers of our identities. In this lively work, Jack Zipes explores the historical rise of the literary fairy tale as genre in the late seventeenth century and examines the ideological relationship of classic fairy tales to domination and oppression in Western society. The fairy tale received its most "mythic" articulation in America. Consequently, Zipes sees Walt Disney's Snow White as an expression of American male individualism, film and literary interpretations of L. Frank Baum's The Wizard of Oz as critiques of American myths, and Robert Bly's Iron John as a misunderstanding of folklore and traditional fairy tales. This book will change forever the way we look at the fairy tales of our youth.

This manual is designed to help teachers establish a principled framework for developing English at Key Stages 1 and 2. Covering all aspects of English, it will help teachers raise standards of achievement in pupils at all levels of fluency and confidence. The author uses case study material to relate theory to practice, covering issues such as classroom organization and management. She also provides guidance for planning and developing ideas with colleagues and with children, and offers suggestions for teaching strategies with photocopiable sheets and formats and ways to evaluate teaching. Separate sections deal with reading, writing, speaking and listening, and these different threads are drawn together in sections on knowledge about language - including spelling, grammar and punctuation - and study of texts - including media, poetry, drama, response to literature and the use of non-fiction texts. The final section deals with policy and schemes of work. Each chapter also offers information on: * assessment, recording and reporting, linked to scales of progression * frameworks for screening and supporting children who have difficulties with English * gender * working with parents * linguistic and cultural diversity Eve Bearne teaches at Homerton College, Cambridge.

The author draws on his own extensive research in urban classrooms to present a grounded theoretical model of young childrens understanding of picture storybooks. Advancing a much broader and deeper theory of literary understanding, the author suggests that children respond in five different ways during picture storybook readalounds; that these responses reveal that children are engaged in five different types of literary meaning-making; and that these five types of meaning-making are instantiations of five foundational aspects of literary understanding.
