    This text really helped me to define my genres. I was unsure about many of the elements that each genre contained. Before I went to search for books in the library, I used this book as a resource to note certain literary elements. I also loved how each chapter shared titles and authors that were popular in that genre. This helped me a lot when it came to researching my author for the author study and selecting books to read. This is a great resource because it helps to explain research based on This text really helped me to define my genres. I was unsure about many of the elements that each genre contained.

    Fascinating book on how literature stimulates children's thinking from picture books to classics. I'm taking this for a class and had no idea it would be this interesting. My daughter is an elementary teacher in San Diego an I will definitely forward this to her for her library. It really is a must for teachers!

    I read this book for grad school. It had some great tidbits for enhancing my knowledge, and I enjoyed the endless list of books it provided. I feel like it will be a good resource when I'm looking for specific texts for specific content or themes.

It includes detailed descriptions of the many varieties of children's literature, as well as stand-out examples from each genre and excellent resources for further reading. In addition, each chapter is full of text boxes encouraging readers to consider important issues in children's literature and literacy, as well as suggestions for best practices in teaching reading.

It's all written in a very accessible style, so parents won't have any trouble using it to raise excellent readers. Teachers and librarians may find it extra useful, however, as the final few chapters involve creating a literature-rich learning environment.

    This is the required textbook for the undergraduate level Children's Literature course I teach. I appreciate the e-textbook features from Pearson but also refer to the loose leaf hard copy version on a daily basis. The writing is informative but not overly dry. There is an emphasis on how Children's Literature is applied in K-12 classroom settings, which is great but sometimes can be difficult for non-education majors to relate to. I use supplemental readings to cover some gaps but overall, I am This is the required textbook for the undergraduate level Children's Literature course I teach.
