Review:

"I would definitely recommend this text to a colleague looking for a children’s literature textbook." - Terry Diana Benton, Youngstown State University


"I like the structure of this text: it’s brief and to the point. It gives my students concepts that they can use when they read actual trade books." - Terry Diana Benton, Youngstown State University


"... this text has excellent content for use in a children’s literature class." - Gail Ditchman, Moraine Valley Community College


"...the organization of the book and its readability are excellent!" - Gail Ditchman, Moraine Valley Community College

From the Back Cover:

Brief, yet packed with rich resources, this popular book is a true compendium of information about children’s literature designed to awaken and motivate future and new teachers to share literature with children.

 

The well known, well respected authors focus on teaching reading to children through today’s rich array of available trade books, rather than through an exhaustive textbook about children’s books. At the same time they ensure that readers get critical coverage of the most important knowledge about literature and about teaching literature to children. Clear, concise, and direct, the book uses recommended book lists, examples, figures, and tables in combination with narrative and prose to help teachers free class time to more efficiently focus on involving children with literature.

 

This new edition includes some outstanding features designed to increase the effectiveness of the book’s already-popular presentation:

  • New children’s book selections reinforce presentation of the familiar, much appreciated older titles.
  • A focus on global and multicultural issues and books is integrated throughout the genre chapters and in the book lists.
  • Updating of the features within the chapters includes important developments, recent children’s book titles, outstanding new creators of children’s books, and current issues and topics related to the field.
  • Highlighted literary elements in each genre chapter, along with a response strategy for encouraging readers to engage with books from that genre are included.
  • Connections to the Common Core Standards are woven throughout the book.
