Overview

LITERATURE AND THE CHILD, 8th Edition, covers the two major topical areas of children's literature: the genres of children's literature (picturebooks, contemporary realistic fiction, etc.) and the use of children's literature in the classroom. The book offers succinct yet beautifully written and illustrated discussions that reflect the tone and feel of children's books. Featuring discussions of the latest works of children's literature, the book includes coverage of the growing importance of young adult literature as well as emphasis on upper-level children's literature and adolescent literature. The authors pay careful attention to diversity in children's literature and equip readers with practical, research-based teaching ideas linked to the Common Core English Language Arts Standards for grades kindergarten through eight.
