9780810837874: Profiles in Children's Literature: Discussions with Authors, Artists, and Editors

Profiles in Children's Literature offers readers a chance to learn about some of the 20th century's finest creators of the children's book.
In 1969, Dr. Weiss began making videos of authors, illustrators, and editors in the children's literature field, who met with some of her Temple University classes to discuss their work. She invited local librarians and teachers to join her in interviewing guests.

This book summarizes and quotes extensively from the personal interviews in the video series and also expands and updates guests' background data. All guests are highly celebrated: Aliki, Judy Blume, Beverly Cleary, Tom and Muriel Feelings, Russel Freedman, Ezra Jack Keats and many others. This fascinating look into the life of so many famous people encapsulates their insights at various stages of their careers. The photographs included in each chapter are from that time period and enhance the already personal accounts.

For children's literature fans, including parents and grandparents; pre- and in-service teachers and librarians; and students of children's literature.

About the Author:

She is the author of Young Brer Rabbit and Other Trickster Tales from the Americas―with Eartha Kitt's audiocassette narration―(Stemmer House, 1985), a Notable Children's Book in the Field of Social Studies.

Review:

...valuable for foregrounding the many connections between creators' works and their personal lives...notable for its diversity. (Children's Literature Association Quarterly)

...there are many, many gems here, including interviews with such luminaries as Arna Bontemps, Lorenz Graham, Marguerite de Angeli, Eleanor Estes, and Margaret McElderry. (The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books)
