About the Author:

Bernice E. Cullinan is known both nationally and internationally for her work in children's literature. She has written more than 30 books on literature for classroom teachers and librarians, including LITERATURE AND THE CHILD, POETRY LESSONS TO DAZZLE AND DELIGHT, and THREE VOICES: INVITATION TO POETRY ACROSS THE CURRICULUM. She also has written a book for parents, READ TO ME: RAISING KIS WHO LOVE TO READ. Dr. Cullinan is editor in chief of Wordsong--the poetry imprint of Boyds Mills Press, a Highlights for Children Company--and has collected poems written by the recipients of the National Council of Teachers of English Award for A JAR OF TINY STARS. She served as president of the International Reading Association, was inducted into the Reading Hall of Fame and The Ohio State University Hall of Fame, and selected as the recipient of the Arbuthnot Award for Outstanding Teacher of Children's Literature. Dr. Cullinan lives in New York City.

After teaching in elementary- and middle-school classrooms for a number of years, Lee Galda received her Ph.D. in English Education from New York University. A former professor at the University of Georgia, she is now a professor at the University of Minnesota where she teaches courses in children's and young adult literature. Lee is a member of the International Reading Association and the United States Board on Books for Young People, working on various committees related to literature. She was children's books department editor for The Reading Teacher from 1989 to 1993; a member of the 2003 Newbery Committee; a member of the International Reading Association Book Award Selection Committee for the past five years, co-chairing that committee in 2010-2011 and 2011-2012; and a member of the USBBY Bridge to Understanding Award Committee in 2008 through 2010, chairing that committee in 2011. She sits on the review boards of several professional journals and on the editorial boards of Children's Literature in Education and Journal of Children's Literature. Author of numerous articles and book chapters about children's literature and response, she was lead author of the first chapter on children's literature appearing in the HANDBOOK OF READING RESEARCH (Volume III). In 2011, Lee received the International Reading Association's Arbuthnot Award for excellence in teaching children's literature. Lee lives in Minneapolis, Minnesota, with her husband.

Review:

"The pedagogical features are a significant strength across all the chapters of Literature and the Child. The "A Close Look At..." feature supports my course objective to focus on fewer specific works in depth rather than many books in a more superficial way. The profiles also add depth and interest."

"Both Chapters 13 and 14, on literature-based instruction, are strong contributions to the text. The specific information and detailed classroom vignettes put flesh on concepts covered in reading methods courses. Students don't necessarily see how to use all these good children's books in the classroom. They often don't make the connection. These chapters answer the question my students most often ask, 'how do I actually do this?"

"One of the main reasons I chose this text is because it does not get the reader "bogged-down" in examples of literature that the student may or may not be familiar with. The authors do a very good job at limiting examples to only the very best."

"The strengths of this text include the practical and clearly presented teaching ideas throughout the text."

"Literature and the Child is a thorough, engaging text. The figures and activity boxes in each chapter are my favorite features and what sets it apart from other children's literature texts."
