EPBC – European Picture Book Collection II (EPBC – Europäische Bilderbuchsammlung II)


This project created a collection of picture books from all 27 (as during 2010-2012) member states of the EU with accompanying educational material using cutting edge ICT.

This project is a continuation of the original European Picture Book Collection (EPBC) which was created by European scholars and educators working in the field of children's literature and teacher education. Through reading the visual narratives of at least one picture book from each member state, the first EPBC was devised to help both teachers and children to learn more about their European neighbours' languages, literatures and cultures.

EPBC II project promotes the structured pedagogical use of picture books focusing on second language teaching and learning. The picture books appear as flipping books (either the whole book or parts of it depending on copyright permissions) and are accompanied by on-line interactive activities that bring the e-books in dialogue with each other and engage students in creative literary, linguistic and cultural comparative processes. Specifically, the project encourages, enhances and supports improvements in pedagogical approaches regarding the teaching of European languages and literatures.
