This talk presents some works of the Research Group of Literary Literacy – GPELL , that belongs to CEALE , in the field of literary reading. I’m interested in the possibilities of constructing narratives from the relations between verbal and visual languages in books for children. The choice of works comes from books indicated to the annual selection of books with the seal “Highly Recommended” and “Awarded” of Fundação Nacional do Livro Infantil e Juvenil – FNLIJ (National Foundation of Children´s and Youth Books), from 2005 to 2012. Although these books are from Brazil and other countries and translated into Portuguese, the emphasis will be on Portuguese language books.


Celia Abicalil Belmiro teaches at Federal University of Minas Gerais in Brazil and is researcher of GPELL (Research Group of Literary Literacy) of the CEALE (Centre of literacy, reading and writing), Federal University of Minas Gerais. Her researches comprise studies on literary reading, on reader formation, and on training teachers’ competence to form readers. Her current area of investigation is the relationship between visual and verbal texts in picturebooks, incorporating interdisciplinary studies.

This talk is part of the Centre for Research in Children's Literature at Cambridge series.
