Since this book's debut, LITERATURE AND THE CHILD has become a popular choice in the children's literature market. The book covers the two major topical areas of children's literature -- genres of children's literature (e.g., picture books, folklore, etc.) and the use of children's literature in the classroom. The book is beautifully written and illustrated to reflect the tone and feel of children's books. The authors pay careful attention to diversity and provide research-based information about teaching. Extensive booklists are provided for the student to use as an ongoing resource as well as teaching ideas that can be applied in future instruction. Significantly enhanced technology offerings on CD-ROM include an all-new video component featuring in-depth interviews with leading children's book authors and illustrators, an improved title search engine, and an online Tool Bank feature. Additionally, this book includes a four-month subscription to InfoTrac College Edition, and each chapter includes suggested articles from the prestigious HORNBOOK journal, as well as further suggestions for in-class discussion and outside writing assignments.
