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.

This practical guide examines the business of providing a library service for young people. Answering a need for a hands-on manual for the practitioner in this sector, the book reflects the variety of work in the field. Using practical examples, it combines strategy with action and aims to provide service managers with a manual of service elements. It addresses the details of service specification, business plans, targets, profiles and strategies and also introduces the concept of benchmarking in young people's library services.
