Hi, my coursework is comparing language features between three children's books to see if they are similar despite being published twenty years apart, and investigating whether and why these three books still appeal to children today. I'm aware that I haven't used enough theorists - used CLA theorists such as Bruner/Vygotsky but want more specific theories related to education/backing up why certain features appeal to children eg rhyme, drawings etc. Any suggestions would be super helpful - I've been through my linguistics books but just can't find anything relevant enough. Thanks very much

I'm not sure that you'll find much linked directly to educatiobalist. I think that you are going down the wrong path if u r looking for educationalist theorists. The likes of piaget and skinner are worth a look.

However, i would look at things such as the developmental milestones (hobert & fankel 1999 i think) or nurturing nature (colun blackmore again 1999 i think. But fefinitelt look at the work of sue palmer and how she says language is acquired. Back up what she says with some related theory and link to your books. For example our speech and syllabification has a sense of rhythm and steady beat, rhyme books develop this.

i hope this helps.
