In her Caldecott medal acceptance speech for A STORY, A STORY, Gail Haley addressed the influence of television on children.  As both an author and an illustrator she is uniquely qualified to  understand the relationship between print and picture, page and screen.

Together with her husband, Dr. David Considine, she has authored 2 teacher's resource books to promote visual literacy and media literacy.  Both books from Libraries Unlimited in Colorado have been well reviewed and received. 

The concepts addressed in the books are part of V.I.E.W. [Visual Information Education Workshops] that Haley and  Considine have conducted with teachers, parents, administrators, librarians, media specialists and of course students, throughout the US, Canada, England, Australia and Africa.  The sessions deal with advertising, television, motion pictures, children's books and computer technology
