From the Publisher:

The premier text in the field in an exciting new edition! This text's trademark enthusiastic style, attention to detail, and two-part genre chapters have won it a large and devoted following. Presenting material in accessible, interesting language students respond to, its unique format allows instructors to teach all content, all methods, or any combination of the two that is appropriate for their students. Material focuses on current, proven approaches to teaching such as the literature-based reading approach and the use of literature to encourage children's responses to reading. This text's visual appeal is guaranteed by the use of a wealth of illustrations from favorite full-color children's books in their original colors...and by a fresh, interesting layout featuring the art of real children that keeps students reading and enjoying the process of learning about children's books first page to last.

About the Author:

Following the completion of her doctorate at the University of Wisconsin, Madison, Donna E. Norton joined the College of Education faculty at Texas A&M University where she now holds the rank of professor emerita. She taught courses in children’s literature, language arts, and reading. Dr. Norton is the recipient of the Texas A&M Faculty Distinguished Achievement Award in Teaching. This award is given “in recognition and appreciation of the ability, personality, and methods which have resulted in distinguished achievements in the teaching and the inspiration of students.” She is also the recipient of the Virginia Hamilton Essay Award, presented by the Virginia Hamilton Conference Advisory Board at Kent state University. This annual award recognizes an article that “makes a significant contribution to the professional literature concerning multicultural literature experiences for youth.”

 

Prior to her college teaching experience, Dr. Norton was an elementary teacher in River Falls, Wisconsin and in Madison, Wisconsin. She was a Language Arts/Reading Consultant for federally funded kindergarten through adult basic education programs. In this capacity she developed, provided in-service instruction, and evaluated kindergarten programs, summer reading and library programs, remedial reading programs, learning disability programs for middle school children, elementary and secondary literature programs for the gifted, and diagnostic and intervention programs for reading-disabled adults. Dr. Norton’s continuing concern for literature results in frequent consultations with educators from various disciplines, librarians, and school administrators and teachers.
