This European picture book collection is intended to help teachers to widen children's horizons by bringing picture books from the European member states to British and European primary schools. It describes each of the books selected, discusses the signs and messages carried by the illustrations and text, shows teachers how to help children read the selected texts through their pictures and shows teachers how the books can help children recognize the similarities in children's experiences throughout Europe. The 19 books in the collection have a common theme, friendship. The universality of this theme enables children to engage with the books and empathize with the various characters - witches, animals and people of all ages.

After defining the picture book and describing its history and technological evolution, the author helps you better understand and appreciate picture books by describing how they're made-their anatomy, types of illustration, layouts, design elements, and typography-various types of picture books (genres, formats, styles), how picture books work (the art of the story), and how they relate to child development and literacy. Picture book reviews, building a collection, using picture books with various age groups, and issues such as multicultural literature, classics, and controversial titles are some of the other topics covered.
