Since this book's debut, LITERATURE AND THE CHILD has become a popular choice in the children's literature market. The book covers the two major topical areas of children's literature-genres of children's literature (e.g., picture books, folklore, etc.) and the use of children's literature in the classroom. The book is beautifully written and illustrated to reflect the tone and feel of children's books. Extensive booklists are provided for the student to use as an ongoing resource. This book now comes with a four-month subscription to InfoTrac College Edition to introduce related children's literature journals. A new CD-ROM linked to a powerful Web site includes many valuable resources, such as continually updated booklists and access to an online community of instructors and students where you can share teaching ideas, lesson plans, book reviews, and much more.

This book is an excellent resource for teachers, students and lovers of children's literature. The text reads like you're having a discussion with the authors who treat the subject with such impressive respect (I should know-Lee is one of my professors). There are wonderfully diverse book lists at the end of each chapter with titles organized by genre and in an appendix in the back organized by author. It is an impressive compilation of information about children's literature and literature-based curriculum.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
