Using picturebooks for intergenerational communication


  • Sofia Gavriilidis Pensa MultiMedia Editore


This essay based on the opinion that the intergenerational communication is a prerequisite for a harmonic and creative coexistence of all members of a society examines the potential utilization of children’s books, especially picturebooks, in the reinforcement of intergenerational relations. It also argues
that children’s books not only constitute a suitable tool for the reinforcement of the adult-child relationship but also constitute an interesting reading experience for the adult while contributing in a variety of different ways to the lifelong education of both adults and children.
