From the Back Cover:

Renowned authors Charles Temple, Miriam Martinez, and Junko Yokota give teachers a myriad of practical ideas and strategies for sharing literature with children—and helping them enjoy the experience. The authors show how effective teaching with children’s literature involves three roles: the critic who brings an understanding of how literature works and how children respond to literature into the classroom, the resourceful teacher who knows a wide range of good books to bring to children, and the literacy activist who guides children into books and helps them enjoy the experience. The authors do this through a variety of practical applications and unique pedagogical features, like “Teaching Ideas,” “Top Shelf” book lists, “Technology in Practice” teaching tips, “Experiences for Further Learning” activities, and wonderful, extensive “Recommended Books” sections that emphasize cultural diversity.

 

Here’s what makes this new fourth edition unique:

  • Dozens of new titles and authors listed in each chapter make this edition a “turn-to” reference for teachers.
  • A new chapter on international books (Ch. 5) reinforces and strengthens the authors’ continuing focus on cultural diversity.
  • A special four-color insert helps readers appreciate the visual elements of picture books.
  • This new edition is available in paperback, making it economical for students to use—and leaving more funds with which to buy more children’s books.
  • MyEducationKit margin notes and end-of-chapter features lead readers to the robust online resource with video clips, assignments, and opportunities to hone teaching skills.
