This 50th anniversary edition of a classic bestseller offers the most comprehensive introduction to children's literature, including the finest authors and artists of both the past and present. Children & Books, 9/e, maintains the features that first made this text a market leader, namely, an emphasis on major authors and artists, guidelines and criteria for selecting good literature in each genre, a focus on new books and new ideas, and above all, unrivaled attention to children's interests and developmental needs.

May Hill Arbuthnot authored the first edition of this now-classic children's literature textbook, a tradition carried on for the last six editions by Sutherland, whose name appears here as sole author for the first time. As before, the best has been retained, the organization remains basically the same, and the text has been revised and updated throughout. The genre chapter bibliographies have been revised to include more multicultural and international titles; the lists of book selection aids and adult references have been expanded; the essays in the "Areas and Issues" section, edited by Peggy Sullivan, are all new; and many new reproductions of book art appear in the text and in four color picture galleries. Because of reader response to the previous volume, the section on developmental psychology has been cut. Once again, this is recommended for its intelligent criticism as well as its accessibility, which is due to both the clear writing style and the format. Sally Estes
