Dissemination

The final outcome of this study is the monograph Picturing Canada: A History of Canadian Children’s Illustrated Books and Publishing (Toronto: University of Toronto Press, 2010) which provides the first comprehensive examination of publishing for children in Canada and Canadian picturebooks, and stands as a reference resource that brings together historical and contemporary information, socio-cultural and pedagogical themes, and informed description and discussion of individual writers and illustrators, styles, media, and techniques. Our research has been communicated in the monograph, journal articles, conference presentations, and through electronic access to this web site devoted to the subject.

Canadian illustrated books for children play an important role in Canadian childhood, society, and culture. Critical documentation, evaluation, and interpretation of this field benefits a wide range of constituencies, including scholars and students in the fields of children's literature, Canadian literature, library and information studies, education, fine arts, and publishing. Canadianists and scholars of children's literature outside Canada will also find the study valuable. Professionals and practitioners in the fields of education, early childhood education, librarianship, and the interested public, including parents, will find the study of particular interest.
