Reviewers and Students Rave:

“[My] students felt overwhelmingly that this was one of the most readable and well organized textbooks they’ve encountered. They really benefited from the consistent boxes ‘Responding to Literature,’ ‘Integrating Literature and Technology,’ etc. in each chapter.” -- Jill Hughes, Casper College

  

 “Anderson clearly has extensive experience, and has read sensitively and well.  I’m impressed with the many practical and useable teaching ideas.  Elementary Children’s Literature is practical and wise.  It’s clearly and concisely written, presents useful discussions of genres and specific texts in these genres, and suggests a variety of ways to share literature with children.” -- Harold Nelson, Minot State University

 

“One strength of this book is its ability to capture the students. I love the tone Anderson has chosen to impart her knowledge. It is written in a reader-friendly fashion. It is less ‘textbook-like,’ less didactic, and feels more like a conversation with the author.”  --Traci P. Baxley,  Florida Atlantic University

Review:

[My] students felt overwhelmingly that this was one of the most readable and well organized textbooks they’ve encountered. They really benefited from the consistent boxes “Responding to Literature”, “Integrating Literature and Technology”, etc. in each chapter. Comments showed that these boxes really gave them “something to think about and helped them generate ideas for how to use books in their classrooms.” Those who responded said that this book would be one they’d keep for future reference. -- Jill Hughes, Casper College

 

 

 

Anderson clearly has extensive experience, and has read sensitively and well.  I’m impressed with the many practical and useable teaching ideas.  These ideas are particularly helpful because Anderson clearly has a broad and varied experience as a teacher, and she makes it clear that the ideas are based on this experience. Elementary Children’s Literature is practical and wise.  It’s clearly and concisely written, presents useful discussions of genres and specific texts in these genres, and suggests a variety of ways to share literature with children. -- Harold Nelson, Minot State University

 

One strength of this book is its ability to capture the students. I love the tone Anderson has chosen to impart her knowledge. It is written in a reader-friendly fashion. It is less “textbook-like”, less didactic, and feels more like a conversation with the author...In addition, Anderson uses her practical experience to support her facts.  --Traci P. Baxley,  Florida Atlantic University
