Joann Kinlaw (joannkinlaw) | 1 comments Illustrated books are a great source to teach children about the particular subject. As pictures leave a positive n deep impact on the brain of the child. Its increase their recall memory. It’s a human psychology that we love visuality. When we see picture or portrait , we are trying to figure out it n try to learn what the portrait want to convey us.
Illustration speaks itself n children love to watch them.Children love listening to stories and by illustrated storybooks they can match what they hear to what they watch about the story and understand the real contexts of the story. Illustration helps in developing children visual literacy and appreciation of art.
Children can learn different kind of expression like happiness,sadness,weeping, crying,joyness and many more. By the illustrated storybooks they can develop a art of imagination.
Teacher and parents both find the illustrated books very helping in teaching children as it a quick way to make them understand about something.
My conclusion about the above topic is that yes illustration leave a profound impact on the children's learning . research also stated the same. Joann Kinlaw
